High pressure will remain in control on Sunday allowing for more sunshine and pleasant temperatures in the lower 70s.

Futurecast projections for highs Sunday afternoon

Heading into the holiday week a weak cold front will be drifting down through Acadiana Monday sparking off a few light scattered showers throughout the day but for the most part we will stay dry.

Here is a look at the latest Futuruecast showing the isolated showers trying to develop Monday.


Now the front will increase cloud cover across the region holding highs a couple degrees cooler in the mid to upper 60s Monday afternoon.

As the front slides out into the Gulf Tuesday morning there still could be a lingering light shower for communities along the coast before high pressure builds back over the area during the afternoon clearing things out.

But slightly cooler air will swing in behind the front so highs on Tuesday will fall into the low to mid 60s.

Wednesday will start off dry with partly sunny skies before clouds increase throughout the day ahead of our next system.

Models are indicating a low will develop along the Texas Coast Wednesday and slide towards Acadiana during the evening and overnight hours.

This system looks to bring the chance for heavy showers and even a few thunderstorms but right now I am not expecting any severe weather or flooding issues.

A couple light showers could still be around Thanksgiving morning but they should end by 8-9am and it looks to be a really nice day with a mix of sun and clouds and temperatures in the mid 60s.

Beyond Thanksgiving there is a fair amount of uncertainty in the forecast as the models are having trouble figuring out when our next cold front will arrive heading into next weekend.
