Warm Friday, Weekend cool front

Posted: Updated:

Acadiana will finish the week on a balmy note with temperatures reaching the upper 80s under partly cloudy skies.

Rain chances will remain slight for our Friday but should improve to near 50%, especially for early to mid Saturday afternoon as a robust cool front sweeps through the area.

It appears with this front that most severe weather parameters will be either not present nor phased across the Acadiana area. 

But with that being said, one or two storms could become capable of producing isolated pockets of hail and/or perhaps, damaging winds.

Per the Storm Prediction Center, the risk of severe weather for Acadiana, at best, will be "marginal"

The shower activity should end early Saturday evening, with breezy and cooler conditions to ensue overnight.

Look for highs in the upper 80s Friday, mid-80s Saturday, dropping into the lower 70s Sunday afternoon after a morning start in the mid-50s!

Sunny and pleasant weather will continue through mid-next week as temperatures gradually warm.

By the end of next week, into the following weekend, the weather pattern should be warm and rather humid, with at least the chance of scattered, mainly daytime showers and a few storms.  

And in the tropics...

The first tropical storm of the 2017 season, has formed in the open Atlantic....but don't blink, this system shouldn't last more than one lonely day in the ocean.

Tropical Storm Arlene developed from a sub-tropical depression Wednesday, to a tropical depression Thursday morning, with an upgrade to storm status Thursday afternoon.

Arlene with 45 mph winds, is traveling northwestward near 25 mph and will likely be absorbed and dissipated by a much larger frontal trough Friday. 

Arlene is the first April Atlantic Basin system since 2003, and its formation by no means is an indicator as to whether the tropics will be busy, or not, later this summer and fall.
