The clouds moved into Acadiana on Sunday afternoon signaling that a front will slowly become stationary over the next couple of days.

Since the front is going to be stationary it will keep the pattern from moving around all that much and the clouds that moved in Sunday will remain with us through the first half of the week.

While the clouds hang around we'll be in the warm sector of the front so expect highs the next few days to sit in the mid 70s and lows to stay in the mid to upper 60s.

Winds will be coming in from the south at about 10-15 mph which is providing enough moisture to spark a light isolated shower or two on Monday.

Rain chances will increase through the middle of the week, peaking on Wednesday with the chance for a couple of strong to severe storms on Wednesday.

Any severe weather we see this week will be isolated events, but the storms could produce all modes of severe weather with damaging winds and isolated tornadoes being the predominant threat.

Expecting the stronger storms to be just to our west and getting weaker the further east they travel, but we'll still be in the zone for severe weather so make sure you monitor the weather closely the next few days.
