The unseasonably cool temperatures will be sticking around Acadiana to start the new work week.

Temperatures Monday morning will be quite chilly with lows in the upper 30s to lower 40s.

Here is a look at the latest hour-by-hour temperatures for tonight:


The good thing is we should start with a fair amount of sunshine Monday helping to warm temperatures into the lower 60s by the afternoon.

However, during the afternoon and evening a quick moving shortwave will slide across the pelican state producing lots of clouds, along with the slight chance for a passing stray shower.

Fast moving shortwave could bring a passing shower Monday evening


We will have another frigid start Tuesday morning with lows in the upper 30s to lower 40s but it should turn out to be a nice day as high pressure builds over the region creating sunny skies and highs to climb into the upper 60s.

Cold start again Tuesday morning for Acadiana
Lots of sunshine will warm temperatures nicely Tuesday afternoon


Spring-like temperatures return Wednesday with highs in the mid 70s as winds flip out of the south pushing warm Gulf air over Acadiana.

Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms are back in the forecast Thursday as our next system swings through the Southeast.

Good chance for heavy showers/storm Thursday afternoon


This system looks to bring a good soaking to Acadiana with many spots getting 1 to 2 inches of rain.

Friday, according to the European model, we should get a break in the rain with partly sunny skies and temperatures in the lower 80s.

The weekend will start out dry before scattered showers and maybe a thunderstorm slide back over the region Saturday afternoon/evening ahead of another low pressure system.

Hit or miss showers/storms possible Saturday afternoon/evening


The low and associated front will then push into Acadiana on Sunday creating another round of showers and a few thunderstorms.

Another round of showers likely Sunday


We could pick up another inch of much need rain with this system on Sunday.
