It's been a hot fall so far, in fact after going through and verifying some of the numbers, Louisiana has just wrapped up it's hottest September on record (records go back to 1895).

The first week of October saw this trend continue with temperatures consistently hitting the 90 degree mark and a heat index in the triple digits.

Finally though it looks like some relief is on the way in the form of a cool front which will, at the very least drop temperatures to what they should be for this time of year.

Monday's forecast will continue to see temperatures run a little warmer, and muggier, than normal but with clouds and showers in place it'll keep us from hitting 90 once again.

There's enough moisture in place that a few scattered showers and a thunderstorm or two will be possible late Monday afternoon/early evening.

Once the showers clear up some drier air will move through the area knocking temperatures down to more or less normal for October meaning lows in the low 60s.

Highs through the rest of the week will be in the mid 80s and warming back up toward the end of the week.

There's a chance at another front toward the end of the week which would knock back temperatures just in time for Festival Acadien.
