Temperatures overnight tonight and into Sunday morning will be falling into the upper 40s to lower 50s across Acadiana under mainly clear skies.

Surface high pressure will start to lose its grip on Sunday as a cold front will be swinging through the region.

It'll be a dry front with no precipitation expected.

We may see some high clouds try to move in at some point during the day on Sunday, but otherwise, mainly sunny skies are expected.

Temperatures will still top out in the low to mid-70s on Sunday afternoon as winds will be picking up out of the north.

Expect northerly winds at around 12-17 mph with gusts at times to around 20+ mph.

That colder, drier air will really start to be filtering into the region heading into Sunday evening and night.

Low temperatures Monday morning will be in the mid-40s as high temperatures struggle to reach the mid-60s during the day.

Even colder start for election day as temperatures will be in the lower 40s before warming up to around 70 degrees by the afternoon.

A gradual warm-up can be expected through the rest of next week as rain chances stay low.

Overall, a pretty nice pattern will continue for Acadiana! Enjoy!

In the tropics: Tropical Storm Eta has formed in the Caribbean.

It will make a run for Central America as a hurricane by Tuesday.

The forecast track eventually weakens it over Central America, but uncertainty in the long-range forecast remains.

If it were to try and turn more northward with time as some of the models try to depict (10+ days out) , it would likely stay closer to the eastern Gulf rather than our part of the world.

At this time, it presents no threat to Acadiana, but of course, we will continue to keep an eye on it.

The rest of the tropics are quiet at this time.
