It's a gloomy couple of days coming up across Acadiana with a frustratingly unsettled forecast that may last through the weekend and all the way into Mardi Gras day.
This pattern will get started on Tuesday with clouds streaming in across the area and eventually giving way to a handful of showers popping up across the area through the day.
While almost everyone will stand a chance to catch a stray shower the areas that are north of I-10 may see some heavier sustained activity and even a few thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon.
The wet weather will be accompanied by a warmer, muggier atmosphere with temperatures running into the low 70s Tuesday afternoon, and the lows likely hanging in the 60s.
Wednesday won't be much of an improvement, in fact, conditions will likely deteriorate on Wednesday with showers becoming more widespread across south Louisiana.
A couple of wet days doesn't mean there will be a major flood threat in Acadiana in fact likely around a half inch to an inch the next few days with a few hot spots perhaps seeing a little more.
A quick break by the end of the week will be short-lived and showers and storms will be back for the weekend.
