Another nice evening and night ahead for Acadiana with temperatures falling back into the mid to upper 50s under mainly clear skies.

We'll see a mainly sunny sky early on Saturday with more of a sun and cloud mix heading into Saturday afternoon as high temperatures settle back into the lower 80s.

Southerly flow will be increasing throughout the day, so expect a little bit of a breeze into Saturday afternoon, but overall, a pretty nice day will be on tap.

Clouds will continue to build overnight Saturday and into Sunday morning as our next front arrives to the region.

We aren't looking at a widespread nor heavy rain event with this front, but scattered showers will be possible through Sunday morning ahead of it.

Skies will then gradually start to clear through Sunday afternoon paving the way for a great stretch of weather across Acadiana into next week.

We will be talking overnight low temperatures in the 40s, while highs settle in comfortably into the lower and mid-70s under abundant sunshine.

Have a great weekend, y'all!

In the tropics: A brand new tropical storm (yes, another one... *sigh*) has formed in the Caribbean Sea.

Iota becomes the 30th named storm of the Atlantic season.

It forecasted to become a major hurricane upon landfall in Central America sometime on Monday.

It is then expected to continue moving westward through mid-week where it will weaken over the mountainous terrain on Central America.

It will pose no threat to the Gulf of Mexico as a cold front keeps it well south of area.
