Milder temperatures along with increased cloud cover are in the forecast for Acadiana this weekend.
A series of storm systems moving across the U.S. this weekend will engender a return flow from the Gulf of Mexico allowing for temperatures to warm into the upper 60s Friday and spring-like mid-upper 70s across Acadiana this weekend.
With the warmer temperatures, plenty of clouds are expected with the risk of a few sprinkles or light showers as early as Friday night and the risk of scattered rain showers Saturday.
Rain chances should stay 30% or less through Saturday night but will increase to 60% or better late Sunday into Sunday night as a frontal trough gradually works its way through the region.
In addition to shower activity, embedded thunderstorms will become more likely Sunday afternoon/evening. At this point, no organized severe weather is anticipated.
Drier and slightly cooler air will move back into the area early-mid-next week.
