Acadiana will see plenty of sunshine and seasonable temperatures into the weekend with our coolest cool front of the season arriving early next week.
In the near term, in the wake of this morning's cool front, look for temperatures to drop into the mid-upper 50s most areas Friday morning, but closer to the lower 50s across the northern Acadiana parishes.
Wall to wall sunshine is in the forecast for our Friday with highs topping out in the mid-80s.
Plenty of sun and warmer than normal temperatures are anticipated Saturday with highs reaching the upper 80s with a few spots possibly touching 90°.
At least it will be a dry heat Saturday with comfortable humidity...normal highs this time of year should be in the lower 80s.
Moving into Sunday, some clouds will begin to invade the area ahead of a frontal boundary that is expected to arrive Monday.
Some showers will be possible later Sunday into Sunday night and Monday, but at this point our rain chances are trending downward with best rains west back toward Texas.
High temperatures Sunday should be in the mid-upper 80s.
Some of the coolest temperatures of the fall season should follow a day or two behind Monday's front with temperatures possibly dropping into the low-mid 40s for Wednesday and Thursday mornings while daytime highs will top out some 10° below normal in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
