Storms continue along the coast and the offshore waters this morning as a cool front pushes southward. This front will bring drier air into the area, shutting down the rains and allowing for a bit more comfortable weather for a couple of days.
Clearing skies are expected this afternoon with highs in the low 90s. Humidity levels will continue to drop off tonight allowing for temperatures to drop into the upper 60s to near 70. Wednesday should be pleasant with highs near 90 and low humidity. Moisture will return Thursday and Friday with a few scattered storms redeveloping. Better chances for rain as we head into the early part of the weekend.
A disturbance will continue to be monitored over the central Atlantic Ocean. It has a pretty good chance of becoming a tropical depression or tropical storm over the next couple of days. It's still over 3500 miles away from Acadiana, but it's expected to turn northward over the western Atlantic.
