The clouds have begun to move over Acadiana today with some showers developing over East Texas.

There is a slight chance for a few light passing showers this evening as the rain slides out of east Texas and towards Acadiana.

Then this weekend the much anticipated low pressure system will form in the Gulf of Mexico producing scattered showers for Acadiana beginning Saturday afternoon and lingering into Sunday morning.

Rainfall totals will be on the light side around a quarter to a half inch so flooding will not be an issue.

Due to the clouds and showers on Saturday temperatures will hold in the 50s.

By Sunday afternoon we could start to get a few peeks of sunshine warming highs to near 60.

Next week high pressure builds over the southeast setting up a fantastic forecast for Christmas.

With lots of sunshine Monday afternoon we will start to see our temperatures get back to normal as highs will top out in the mid 60s.

For Christmas Eve temperatures could even push 70 under mostly sunny skies.

Christmas looks amazing with a mix of sun and high clouds and highs in the lower 70s.

The mild temperatures continue for the rest of the week with highs in the lower 70s Thursday and Friday although clouds will start to move back over the region.

Then by the following weekend our weather gets a little unsettled again as an approaching cold front will head for Acadiana bringing with it the chance for a few scattered showers again.
