It's a quiet stretch of weather, thankfully, for Acadiana which looks like it will last through the end of this week and well into next week.

Mostly sunny skies, Wednesday, will allow the temperatures to back up to the low 90s and the heat index will sit close to around 100 making it another very hot afternoon.

This heat will be true despite the fact that for another day we will get a steady breeze from the north as winds wrap around Sally for the third day in the row.

While it mostly feels like summer outside there are indications that we may be seeing a change in the season (which is good since next week the season literally changes) and some dry air may be moving in to the area.

Temperatures will dip slightly along with the humidity over the weekend and highs will consistently stay in the 80s as opposed to the 90s as we go through next work week.

It'll still feel plenty hot outside but these are the first steps we have to take before we can start looking for cold fronts to successfully move into the region.
