Acadiana is set for its coolest temperatures since late April Wednesday morning with low temperatures expected to be in the low-mid 50s.

High pressure will remain the dominant feature Wednesday with wall to wall sunshine and comfortable afternoon temperatures reaching the upper 70s.

Clear skies and cool temperatures will prevail again Wednesday night into Thursday morning with lows in the mid-upper 50s.

Lots of sunshine and a temporary return of southwesterly winds will allow temperatures to climb back toward the low to mid-80s but yet another front will push through the area by Thursday night.

Another cool-down will follow Friday into the weekend with overnight/morning lows dropping back down to the lower 50s Saturday morning.

The weather pattern will stay on a roll this weekend with plenty of sun, perhaps tempered by a few high clouds into Sunday as yet another dry cool front crosses the area into Sunday evening.

Highs this weekend will top out in the mid-70s Saturday and upper 70s to near 80° Sunday.

Sunny and cool weather should continue for most of next week with highs mostly in the 70s and lows in the 50s.

Meanwhile in the tropics, while there is nothing organized in the Atlantic Basin at this time, an area of deeper tropical moisture in the Eastern Caribbean should migrate to the Western Caribbean by the end of the week into the weekend while weak low pressure is expected to form in the general vicinity.

This area is always an area to watch in the the tropics heading into October.

There is little indication on whether this potential system will develop substantially and/or eventually scoot off toward the northeast (in the "beyond a week" time-frame), get forced to the west...or just get hung up somewhere from the Northwest Caribbean into the Bay of Campeche.

For now, as long as fronts keep coming and their upper level winds keep shear going across the Northern Gulf, this potential system should not be a threat locally to Louisiana.

But with that being said, if the feature lingers beyond 10-12 days, it could get a little more interesting into the second week of October given an expected change in the upper pattern across the U.S.

For now...just enjoy our beautiful fall weather through the weekend without any tropical worries for a change!
