Finally some changes are coming to the forecast across Acadiana on Sunday.

A cool front will be swinging down through Louisiana Sunday afternoon sparking off some scattered showers and thunderstorms.

A couple of these storms could be strong side with heavy downpours, lightning and gusty winds up to 30-40 mph.

Most areas will only see about a tenth to a quarter of a inch of rain but a few isolated spots where heavy downpours linger could produce up to an inch of rain. 

The good news is behind this front slightly drier air will move over the region knocking down the humidity levels on Monday but it will still be hot with temperatures in the lower 90s.

Tuesday the front will lift back over the Louisiana producing a few hit or miss showers and storms.

The front will still be draped over the region on Wednesday creating about a 30% chance for some afternoon pop-up showers and storms.

Towards the end of the work week the rain chances will go down as the heat will go up a couple degrees as highs will push the mid 90s with heat indices topping out around 105°.

Looking ahead to next weekend it looks to be hot and humid with nearly no rain chances so it should be perfect weather to hit the pool or go to the beach.
