Picture-perfect weather for Easter with bright blue sunny skies and temperatures in the upper 70s.

Now it will be a little on the cool side for those sunrise services with lows in the mid 50s, so you might want to add a jacket or sweater to your Easter outfit.

Eggscellent Easter forecast!


High pressure will slowly scoot off to the east into the first half of the work week flipping winds out of the south pushing temperatures into the upper 70s to lower 80s.

Near average highs Monday afternoon


The southerly flow will also help to increase moisture levels causing clouds to develop over Acadiana Monday and Tuesday.

A couple stray showers could be possible by Wednesday afternoon as our next storm system moves into Texas.

Our rain chances really ramp up late Wednesday into Thursday morning as the Low pressure system moves towards central Louisiana.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue through the afternoon before the low pushes off to the east and things clear out just in time to head out to Festival Thursday evening.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms likely Thursday


The best news is dry conditions and lots of sunshine returns to Acadiana for Friday and the weekend setting up a fantastic forecast for Festival International.

Temperatures even look to be comfortable for Festival with highs in the low to mid 80s before cooling into the 70s during the evening.
