The forecast has quieted down significantly from earlier this week and looks like it will stay that way through the remainder of the work week.
The front that passed through a few days ago is currently stalled just off shore and has lead to a few showers and storms starting up in the Gulf of Mexico.
It will stay offshore for the remainder of the work week, but will eventually push back on shore for the beginning of the work week.
This means the reintroduction of daily shower chances in the afternoon and our typical August humidity will be storming back in.
In the meantime, however, conditions are much drier then usual and Thursday morning should feel down right pleasant.
Temperatures early Thursday will be in the upper 60s and even during the day it will only heat up to around 90s in the afternoon.
With the absence of humidity the heat index will be more under control and will be staying out of the mid 90s let alone the triple digits.
Temperatures and humidity will be slightly higher along the coast where the dry air will struggle to make much of an impact.
Even with higher humidity chances are Acadiana will avoid showers for the next several days as high pressure will be dominant the next several days.
