Summer returns Sunday before our next cool down

Posted at 4:06 PM, Oct 13, 2018

Winds are picking up out of the south Saturday afternoon and eventually will push gulf moisture over Acadiana preventing temperatures from cooling as much as they have the past couple nights as lows will hold in the lower 70s Sunday morning.

The southerly winds could also cause some minor flood along the coast as a Coastal Flood Advisory issued until 9 AM as tides will run 1-2 feet above normal.

Sunday temperatures will warm up quickly under mostly sunny skies as highs will top out in the upper 80s to near 90 with feel like temperatures in the mid 90s.

So, if you are heading out to any of the festivals throughout Acadiana on Sunday remember to stay hydrated and have the hats, sunglasses and sunscreen handy.

Heading back to work and school Monday we will start off with partly sunny skies and warm temperatures in the mid 80s but during the afternoon/evening we are watching our next cold front working down into Acadiana.

This front will bring a round of scattered showers and a few storms Monday night into Tuesday.

Also, we will get another shot of fall like temperatures as highs the rest of the week will be in the low to mid 70s with overnight lows getting down into the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Rain chances then look to go back up next weekend as our next system works into the region.
