Sunday most of Acadiana got a break from the rain but as we head back to work and school you are going to want to have the umbrella handy again.

As Tropical Storm Michael begins to make its way into the Gulf we will start to see some tropical moisture head our way bumping rain chances up to about 30-40% Monday afternoon.

Tuesday looks to be our highest chance for scattered showers and storms up around 60-70% as Michael will be at its closest position to Louisiana in the Central Gulf.

Thankfully for us we are watching an upper level trough and associated cold front that will be swinging our way on Wednesday which should help to push Michael to our East towards Florida.

As this front sweeps through Acadiana on Wednesday it could combine with moisture from Michael to spark off a few scattered showers and storms.

Behind the front we are going to see lots of sunshine and finally some fall like temperatures for the second half of the work week.

Highs Thursday and Friday will be in the low to mid 80s with low humidity and overnight lows dropping down into the lower 60s!

The beautiful fall-like weather looks to continue for the weekend with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s and lows in the upper 50s and lower 60s, which is fantastic news for UL’s homecoming on Saturday and Festival Acadien.

Rain chances could go up slightly for the first half of the following week as the European model is hinting at the possibility of tropical moisture from Hurricane Sergio working into Texas and could slide over into Acadiana next Monday and Tuesday.

Beyond that the long range models are indicating the possibility of another cold front heading for south Louisiana next Tuesday/Wednesday which could keep temperatures on the comfortable side in the 70s for highs and 50s for lows.
