Welcome to a new week, everyone!

Morning low temperatures on Monday will be in the mid and upper 60s under fair skies.

Southerly flow out of the Gulf of Mexico will continue to contribute to warmer temperatures on Monday afternoon.

Highs will be in the mid 80s under partly cloudy skies.

Rain chances will sit at 10% for a brief shower or storm through the afternoon.

Mid to upper 80s can be expected for Tuesday-Wednesday with rain chances settling in around 10-20%.

Best rain chance of the week comes on Thursday as a shortwave trough approaches from the west.

Still, we are not looking at a washout but we will see at least a somewhat better chance (30-40%) of scattered showers and storms in the afternoon.

Next weekend as of now is looking good with highs in the lower 80s along with minimal rain chances.

Our next cold does not look to arrive until early next week.

There is still some ironing out of the details that need to happen regarding this front (We are 8-10 days out), so we will watch the trends through the upcoming week.

Y'all make it a great week!

In the tropics: Most of the Atlantic remains quiet, but we continue to monitor two areas of interest.

First area still has a high, 90% chance to develop in the next 5 days but remains no threat to the Gulf nor to us in Acadiana.

Second spot in the Caribbean has had chances lowered to 20% as models have backed off of any significant development in the coming days.

It too is no threat to us.

Few more weeks of the season remain, so hang in there! The storm team here at KATC is counting down the days to the end of the season just as much as you all are.
