Warm front return Tuesday, then cool front Thursday

Posted: Updated:

After a round of showers and storms with a frontal system Sunday night, Acadiana saw cooler and drier conditions Monday, but the more comfortable air will be short-lived, as the front backs up on the area as a "warm one" Tuesday.

Although models continue to show little in the way of precipitation Tuesday, there will be the chance of scattered showers, perhaps a thunderstorm during the midday hours into the afternoon.

After an overnight low in the upper 50s to near 60, look for temperatures to rise into the mid-upper 70s Tuesday in spite of mostly cloudy skies.

Temperatures will be much milder, and more humid Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, with a round of fog a good bet as temperatures hover in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

After morning fog and clouds, it will become partly sunny and quite warm Wednesday afternoon with high temperatures reaching the lower 80s. 

Rain chances will increase again late Wednesday night into Thursday morning as the next, more definitive, cool front approaches.

The dynamics for showers and storms with the front will be weakening as the front approaches early Thursday, so at this point, no severe weather is anticipated.

Acadiana will get a nice 48 hour "window" of weather to follow, with mostly sunny and pleasant conditions Friday into Saturday.

Clouds though, should return late Saturday afternoon with increasing rain chances once again Saturday night into Sunday morning as the ebb and flow of fronts into, and out of the Gulf, continues.

The weather pattern looks to stay unsettled and active with rain chances next Monday and Tuesday, followed by drier and cooler conditions for a couple of days later next week.
