Welcome to the weekend everyone!
Coolest temperatures of the early fall season can be expected tonight and into early Saturday morning as lows drop back into the upper 40s to lower 50s across Acadiana under clear skies.
It'll be another absolute beautiful day on Saturday with abundant sunshine and high temperatures in the mid and upper 70s. Hopefully you are able to get out and enjoy it!
The same can be said heading into Sunday although it will be a little warmer with high temperatures reaching the lower 80s.
A weak cold front will move through late Sunday and into early Monday which will help to usher in another spell of some drier and slightly cooler air for early parts of next week.
Unfortunately, our luck with cooler weather will run out through the rest of next week as warmer temperatures look to return to the region.
We will see high temperatures topping out in the mid to upper 80s.
Rain chances still stay pretty minimal throughout the entirety of the 10-day.
In the tropics: We continue to monitor Tropical Depression twenty-five that is sitting in the western Caribbean Sea.
It is expected to become 'Gamma' this weekend as it is forecasted to move into the Bay of Campeche early next week.
The system poses no threat to the Gulf Coast nor us here in Acadiana, but of course we will continue to watch closely.
Elsewhere in the tropics, we are also tracking an area of disturbed weather approaching the central Caribbean.
This area has a 40% to develop in the next 5 days as it treks toward the southern Gulf of Mexico.
Still WAY too early to tell where it will end up thereafter, but it is certainly an area we will be watching in the days ahead.
Even though we typically see a decline in tropical activity in the month of October, it is not advised that we let our guard down. We must remain attentive to the developments out in the tropics for the next few weeks.
Continue to stay with the KATC storm team for the very latest.
