A storm system moving through the Rockies Friday into Saturday will drag a slow moving cool front across the Acadiana by Monday morning accompanied by a round of showers and storms.
Best prospects of storms will be very late Sunday night but there may be some scattered activity developing across western sections by Sunday afternoon.
Wind dynamics aloft may be supportive of some strong and possibly a few severe storms Sunday night into early Monday but it remains unclear at this time whether there will be enough atmospheric instability/buoyancy to garner the threat of severe weather.
The threat of severe weather, if any, should become more clear as the event draws nearer.
In the near term, expect a continuation of a sun and high cloud mix for our Friday with highs near 70.
Clouds will increase and thicken Saturday with a few very light sprinkles possible as the sub-tropical jet increases aloft.
Temperatures Saturday will top out in the lower 70s and should reach the mid-upper 70s Sunday dependant on the amount of sunshine we may see before the thicker storm clouds arrive.
It looks to get rather breezy Sunday ahead of the front with gusty southerly winds likely.
The chance of showers and storms should end early Monday with fair to partly cloudy and seasonably cool conditions likely for the rest of next week.
