It was a gorgeous day on Thursday with full sunshine and pleasant temperatures. A few records fell across the state early Thursday with Lake Charles breaking a 97 year old record by falling to 45. This morning, not as cool across Acadiana, but records have fallen in Baton Rouge and Slidell this morning.
Expect more sunshine today with slightly warmer temperatures. High pressure is over the Gulf of Mexico and a few disturbances will circle an upper level trough over the mid part of the country. One of those disturbances is generating some showers over northern Louisiana this morning heading southeast toward Mississippi and Alabama. This will weaken as it moves and no rain, nor any cloud cover is expected here in Acadiana.
Over the weekend, the weather should remain fine with mostly sunny skies and mild temperatures. Dew points will climb, so overnight lows won't be a cool as yesterday and today. By early next week the return flow off the Gulf will be back in full swing, so expect normal temperatures and normal humidity levels Monday through Thursday.
