Mostly cloudy skies across Acadiana to start off the work week as we get ready to receive a round of soaking showers with the next front moving across the region.

Showers will be largely scattered and light for Monday, although the clouds will be blanketing with little sunshine expected for the first day of the work week.

Despite the lack of sunshine a steady breeze from the south will drive up temperatures into the upper 70s with the heat index likely making it into the low 80s.

Overnight into Tuesday the showers will start to pick up with widespread showers expected by commute time on Tuesday and lasting through the majority of the day.

Rain totals will be in the half inch to an inch range, with a few localized spots possibly picking up closer to 2" when all is said and done, so flooding isn't expected to be a major issue.

While there will be the occasional moderate downpour the majority of the day will be slow steady showers that will finally come to an end by Wednesday mid morning.

Temperatures behind the front will drop back down into the 30s by Wednesday morning it'll be chilly through the back half of the week.
