The beat rolls on as Sunday will be very similar to the past several days.

That means we will have a mix of sun and clouds with hot and humid conditions leading to a 40-50% chance for scattered showers and storms during the afternoon.

This summer-like weather pattern will repeat itself again on Monday before a frontal boundary works its way down over the region on Tuesday.

This front will bring a good chance(60%) for widespread scattered showers and storms Tuesday morning into the afternoon.

This front will work its way out into the Gulf early Wednesday morning.

Behind the front a northerly wind will push down less humid air over Acadiana making it feel a little more comfortable outside although it will still be hot Wednesday and Thursday with highs in the lower 90s.

We will really notice the drier air at night as lows should fall into the upper 60s to the north and outlying areas while in Lafayette lows will reach the lower 70s for the second half of the week.

On Friday and into next weekend the frontal boundary could lift back out of the Gulf and over the region sparking off more isolated to scattered showers and storms during the afternoon.
