The clouds have moved in for the weekend, and they look to stick around through the rest of the week and the weekend.

While we could use a little rain, drought conditions are starting to intensify along the coast, it looks like our rain chances are starting to dwindle from what they looked like earlier this week.

Friday will stay quiet, albeit mostly cloudy, as temperatures start to creep back up in the afternoon and humidity will be on the rise with winds from the south around 5-10 mph.

A weak disturbance could churn things up a little late Friday night/early Saturday morning sparking a handful of showers and storms across Acadiana but the initial round will be wrapping up by daybreak.

A secondary round of rain may try up again Saturday afternoon and evening but the focus of this activity will likely stay down along the coastline.

An unsettled, ill defined pattern will take shape for the first part of next week with a boundary just to our north which could open the doors up for some showers, especially if we get some small scale disturbances along that boundary.

While it's been cool the last few nights this won't last all that long as temperatures next week are expected back in the upper 80s with a summer looking pattern taking shape.
