The good news is that a front has stalled north of Acadiana, which means it will focus heavier rainfall out of the region, however, the bad news is that keeps us in a warm and muggy air mass.

Clouds will be stuck in across Acadiana through the day on Monday and occasionally giving way to some streamer showers that move from south to north feeding into that stalled front.

Showers that develop closer to the boundary will have a little more energy to tap into and will have the potential to produce an isolated severe thunderstorm.

Only extreme northern parts of Acadiana will be capable of seeing severe weather, and even then the likelihood for severe weather will remain small.

There's not much change in the forecast for the next few days as that front stays stationary for the next several days, and won't clear out until Wednesday night.

This means that temperatures will consistently stick in the upper 70s with lows only dropping into the mid 60s with clouds and moisture trapping in that warmth.

Providing all that moisture will be strong winds from the south around 10-15 mph with gusts at 20-25 mph, this will be consistent for the next few days which will mean some higher tides along the coast.

Despite higher rain chances all week our precipitation totals will be around 1-2" of through the week, with showers staying fairly scattered and quick moving.

Stronger thunderstorms will be possible when the front finally moves out of the region, that is expected to take place late Wednesday night and into Thursday morning.
