After cooler than normal temperatures, and probably the most pleasant first half of May in more than 25 years, it appears that temperatures and humidity will be approaching seasonal norms in Acadiana this by this weekend.
In the near term, expect increasing high cloudiness for our Wednesday as a frontal trough in Texas begins to move eastward.
Although this system is expected to weaken as it passes through Louisiana Thursday, it could produce a few widely scattered showers across the area from Wednesday night into early Thursday.
Daytime highs through Thursday will be in the low-mid 80s.
The latter part of the week through the weekend and into early next week will bring near normal highs in the 84-87F range while night-time lows get closer to 70. This means humidity will also be on the upswing through the period as well.
Look for plenty of late night early morning clouds this weekend, but partly to mostly sunny skies for the afternoon hours.
Outside of the slight rain chances in the near term, it appear that any given day through early next week will see no higher than a 10% risk of an isolated shower.
