There won't much sun in the forecast for Acadiana until Sunday as the sub-tropical jet stream stays oriented across the Gulf South after producing soaking rains to start the New Year.
Temperatures will stay well below normal thanks to lingering clouds Wednesday through Saturday while disturbances embedded in the jet stream will keep rain-showers going in the Gulf of Mexico.
Inland some sprinkles or patchy light rain can be expecetd at times late Wednesday/Wednesday night and perhaps for the rest of the week, but chances of measurable precipitation should stay on the low side through Friday.
Another disturbance could bring rain and perhaps a few embedded storms back to the area Saturday, before a brief respite in the pattern Sunday and Monday.
Sunny skies Sunday and Monday should allow our temperatures to get closer to seasonal normals during the afternoon while still remaining chilly at night.
The pattern looks to remain rather unsettled and active next week with more rain/storm chances likely mid-late next week.
