Summer can't be avoided forever.

It's been a really nice start to the month of May so far with a series of fronts keeping the heat and humidity from piling up and reintroducing some cooler air into the region.

As it stands currently though the last front we had may be the last one we get until they start firing up again in the fall, this means that the humidity will be on the rise along with temperatures.

Tuesday will, otherwise, be a beautiful day with plenty of sunshine and the last little bit of crisper weather even though humidity will start to tick up with a stiff breeze coming in from the south.

The moisture will start to pile up through the mid week sparking a few spotty showers on Wednesday and keeping the lows running in the mid to upper 60s across Acadiana.

An inverted trough will then make it's way to Acadiana and will start a fairly wet stretch of days starting on Thursday and lasting all the way through into early parts of next week.

Showers will be most prevalent on Thursday, becoming a little more scattered through the end of the week and into the weekend.

Even after several days of rain the precipitation totals aren't going to be too bad with several inches of rain spread out over a several day time period, still with some of the heavier downpours localized flooding will be possible.
