A few isolated showers have started pushing off the Gulf and over coastal areas of Acadiana to begin our Friday.
These showers will eventually die out before another round of scattered showers/storms slides into Acadiana from the west this afternoon associated with our fall cold front.
You will know when the front swings through your community because the winds will pick up out of the north and temperatures will start to drop.
We will go from highs this afternoon in the mid 80s to temperatures near 70 by this evening with lows bottoming out in the mid 50s Saturday morning.
It is definitely going to be a shock to the system when you step outside the door Saturday morning as feel like temperatures will be in the lower 50s.
The good news is after some morning clouds the sun will come out in the afternoon and it should turn out to be a beautiful fall day with highs climbing into the lower 70s.
It will be another chilly start on Sunday with lows in the mid 50s but with a full day of sunshine temperatures should warm into the upper 70s.
Moving into next week a weak front will try to move into the region and it looks to stall which could lead to a few scattered showers during the afternoon on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday as temperatures warming back into the low tom id 80s for highs.
Late Wednesday into Thursday the front looks to push out into Gulf allowing for slightly cooler temperatures to return with highs dropping back into the mid to upper 70s.
Beyond Thursday the long range models are suggesting that a tropical wave could enter the western Gulf and increase our rain chances by the following weekend.
