The rain arrived as advertised on Sunday bringing a good soaking across the majority of Acadiana. An active sub-tropical jet stream, however, will keep that moisture locked in place so the rain is far from over.
A steep inversion is setting up overnight Sunday which will result in the cloud cover getting locked in place for the start of the work week and make patchy sunshine a rarity.
Gusty winds overnight Sunday will prevent dense fog from developing but if the winds do start to slacken that could be something to keep in mind.
Post front temperatures will be chilly but not quite cold. Expect highs in the afternoon to be up in the mid 50s while lows early Monday morning will be in the upper 30s/low 40s.
Next good shot of rain will arrive Tuesday afternoon with the next front to pass through, northern parts of Acadiana will see the heavier rainfall.
As mentioned above we have an active sub-tropical jet to thank for the round of cooler and cloudier weather and it could be until next work week that we see the skies clear out significantly.
