Welcome to a new week, Acadiana!

Plenty of sunshine and slightly below normal temperatures can be expected for the start of the week.

The upper-level feature that was responsible for the cloud cover this weekend and showers on Sunday morning is finally pushing out of the area.

After a cloudy afternoon across the area, skies will start to clear as the evening and night progresses.

This will allow temperatures to fall into the upper 30s and lower 40s across the region.

With a slight northerly wind in place, wind chills will be in the 30s across all of Acadiana by tomorrow morning, so jackets will certainly be needed out the door!

Some patchy, light frost can not be ruled out for northern parishes, but otherwise, no real issues are anticipated.

High temperatures will be climbing to near 60 degrees by Monday afternoon with plentiful sunshine in place as high pressure becomes in control.

Abundant sunshine can be expected through Wednesday as highs start to trend toward the mid and upper 60s.

By Thursday, high pressure will start to shift off to our east which will allow for more of a southerly flow to return from the Gulf.

As a result, our high temperatures will be a little warmer as they settle into the lower 70s with mainly sunny skies remaining in place.

As we head into Friday, our next low pressure feature and associated cold front will start to approach from the west which will give us a decent chance to see some showers and perhaps a thunderstorm or two for Friday afternoon and evening.

As of now, the upcoming weekend looks fine with partly clouds expected to build back in...

Y'all have a great week!
