Acadiana can expect plenty of sunshine and dry conditions into the weekend, while daytime highs gradually begin their creep upward.
Look for another pleasant evening across the area with lows by Friday morning ranging from the lower 60s across northern portions of Acadiana to mid-60s elsewhere, with the exception of areas right on the coast and/or under the influence of the warmer marshy/swampy areas.
Sunshine with temperatures pushing the upper 80s will finish our our week Friday.
High pressure aloft and at the surface will stay anchored across the region through much of next week insuring plenty of sunshine accompanied by rain chances near zero percent.
Highs Saturday will approach 90-91, while Sunday could be a degree or two hotter. But with mostly a northerly wind, our humidity will stay in check, and that will allow for mostly comfortable overnight/morning lows in the upper 60s this weekend.
Moving into next week the upper ridge of high pressure will expand into next week allow for our daytime highs to push the mid-90s provided afternoon sea-breezes don't get well established or make much headway from the south.
By the end of the week, surface high pressure finally builds back to south in the Gulf, at least allowing for slightly lower high temperatures thanks to more southerly winds, but it will be at the expense of higher humidity.
Rain chances may perk up to 10-20% by next weekend, but don't plan on any good soakings any time soon.
