As we flip the calendar to October it looks like we are going to get rid of the rainy weather that plagued the region the whole month of September.

But with the clouds and rain going away and sunshine returning across Acadiana this week it is back to the warm and humid conditions.

Highs this week will be topping out in the upper 80s and lower 90s each afternoon with feel like temperatures climbing back into the mid to upper 90s.

Also, as we go back to more of a summertime pattern this week with high pressure to our east our winds will flip back out of the ESE pushing a daily sea breeze over the region producing the slight chance for a few pop-up showers each afternoon.

Looking at the extended forecast into next weekend and the following week there are no fronts that look to head our way so temperatures will stay on the warm side in the mid to upper 80s.

Thus, those ready for some fall-like weather you are going to have to wait at least another 10+ days before we see any cool air head our way.
