After a few days of spectacular sunshine the clouds have rolled back in to Acadiana and will be sticking around for several days.

The clouds are coming along with a warm up, both the result of winds shifting from the south and bringing in that warm, moist Gulf air.

Highs on Thursday are expected to make their way into the upper 60s and lows overnight are going to settle around 60 as clouds stick around.

There’s not much in the way of showers expected Thursday but a light passing shower shouldn’t be completely ruled out.

Showers will pick up overnight Thursday and by the time Friday rolls around we could be looking at foggy, misty conditions for your commute.

The atmosphere will continue to be primed ahead of Saturday’s front with more moisture brought in from southerly winds keeping the clouds around the rest of the week.

There’s a chance for severe weather on Saturday with the Storm Prediction Center issuing a marginal risk for Acadiana.

Showers and storms will roll in Saturday afternoon and one or two of those will have the potential for becoming severe.

Damaging winds and isolated tornadoes will be the primary threat, although the risk for both will be greater to our northeast.

Keep an eye on the forecast as we wrap up the work week and make sure you stay weather aware on Saturday.
