Finally, a cool front will swing through Acadiana on Monday sparking off a few scattered showers and storms during the afternoon.

Once this front slides out into the Gulf late Monday night cooler and drier air will filter down into the region giving us a brief shot of fall-like weather.

Lows Tuesday morning will dip down to near normal values in the low to mid 60s.

Then Tuesday afternoon temperatures will feel very pleasant in the low to mid 80s.

Temperatures start to warm back up Wednesday and Thursday as a southeasterly breeze returns pushing highs into the upper 80s.

Friday a stronger cold front makes its way towards the Pelican state.

There is still a little uncertainty on the timing of when the front will arrive with the GFS having the front swinging through during the afternoon/evening while the Euro is a little slower with the front not getting here until late Friday night into early Saturday morning.

Either way it looks like we will have the chance for scattered showers and storms Friday night into early Saturday morning.

Behind this front sweater weather makes its way into Acadiana with highs in the low to mid 70s next weekend and lows in the low to mid 50s!

For those heading out to Festival Acadien you might want to bring a jacket, especially if you plan on being there til the end as it will get cool once the sun goes down.

In the tropics things are fairly quiet.

The National Hurricane Center is watching a band of showers and storms associated with a front off the east coast.

The center is monitoring a couple non-tropical lows along the front for the possibility that they could break away and develop tropical characteristics over the next 5 days.

Right now, the hurricane center is giving these disturbances a 30 and 50% chance of possibly becoming something as the models do indicate that these weak low pressure systems could form with one developing right off the east coast and the other a little farther out over the open Atlantic.
