Under mainly clear skies we will have another cool night for early April standards as lows Wednesday morning will be in the low to mid 40s.
So you might need a light jacket first thing in the morning but like today temperatures will rise rapidly throughout the day topping out in the mid 70s Wednesday afternoon.
Now we will start to have some high to mid level clouds stream across the region on Wednesday dulling out the sunshine but it should still be a nice, dry day.
Thursday however will be a different story.
A warm front will lift out of the Gulf and over Acadiana first thing in the morning and will be the focal point for a few scattered showers and thunderstorms to develop.
This front will continue to lift north through south Louisiana and southern Mississippi on Thursday.
The latest model runs have the majority of the showers and storms to our east in southern Mississippi but our environment will be just as unstable and could produce a few strong to severe storms for Acadiana as well.
For that reason areas north of the interstate are hatched in a slight risk for severe weather on Thursday by the Storm Prediction Center while areas to the south of the interstate are under a marginal risk.
With the storms expected to be the super-cell type of thunderstorms we will have the possibility of gusty winds up to 60 mph, large hail and even a few spin-up tornadoes.
Friday looks good with partly sunny skies and temperatures on the warm side in the lower 80s.
The latest models are showing a slightly better forecast for the weekend.
According to the European model most of the showers and storms stay over Texas on Saturday so we might get a completely dry day which is good news for those wanting to go to the Scott Boudin Festival or get some work done outside this weekend.
As for Sunday our next low pressure and cold front looks to swing the region producing scattered showers and thunderstorms.
This front should clear the area late Monday morning and behind that the models are forecasting a nice stretch of weather with lots of sunshine and spring like temperatures in the lower 80s all next week.
