Heading back to school and work Monday we will start out with mild temperatures in the upper 60s and upper 70s and a mix of sun and clouds.

During the day clouds will be increasing in advance of our next cold front which will slowly work through Acadiana Monday afternoon/evening.

As the front works through the area scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will develop along the boundary so you might need the umbrella as you head home from work on Monday.

Once this front slides through Acadiana we will begin to see the temperatures fall as lows will be in the mid 60s Tuesday morning but with a northerly breeze it will feel cooler.

Tuesday the front will basically stall just to our east and out over the Gulf which could create cloudy skies and the chance for more on and off showers.

With the clouds and light rain temperatures will not move much on Tuesday with highs struggling to reach the low 70s, while some areas across northern Acadiana might only top out in the mid 60s.

Low clouds will linger on Wednesday creating another cool and dreary day with highs in the low to mid 70s but we should be dry.

Thursday looks to be the pick day of the week with a mix of sun and clouds pushing temperatures into the mid to upper 70s.

Friday temperatures could get back into the 80s as winds briefly switch out of the south but that will start to push more clouds back over the region.

Late Friday and into Saturday our next front looks to swing across Acadiana producing the chance for hit or miss showers and lots of clouds which could put a damper on the LSU Homecoming with temperatures falling back into the mid 70s for highs.
