With mostly clear skies and calm winds tonight temperatures will fall quickly once the sun goes down eventually bottoming out in the low to mid 30s Sunday morning.

Thus, we will have the chance for patchy frost throughout Acadiana again so sensitive plants will need to be protected.

After the chilly start it will be another beautiful, Fall day with mostly sunny skies and highs warming into the low to mid 60s.

As we head back to school and work it will not be as cold Monday morning but still chilly with lows in the upper 30s to lower 40s.

And for the first half of the work week high pressure will be in control so our weather will stay quiet with mostly sunny skies Monday through Wednesday.

The biggest thing you will notice as the week moves on is that our temperatures will begin to warm up as winds start to flip out of the south.

Highs on Tuesday will push the lower 70s while temperatures Wednesday and Thursday will top out in the mid to upper 70s.

The next chance for a few showers returns late Thursday into Friday morning as a weak cool front swings through Louisiana.

Behind this front temperatures will cool slightly back into the mid to upper 60s for highs Friday afternoon.

Our best chance for widespread showers and maybe a few thunderstorms will be Saturday afternoon/evening as a low pressure system slides across the pelican state.

A few light showers could linger into Sunday morning but things will start to clear out again as high pressure builds over the region and cooler temperatures return.

Highs Sunday and the following Monday will hold in the upper 50s to lower 60s and overnight lows will drop back into the upper 30s to lower 40s.

Also, in the tropics the National Hurricane Center is watching a board area of showers and storms in the Atlantic.

As of Saturday afternoon the center is only giving this disturbance a 20% chance of development in the coming days and this system will likely get caught up with a front sweeping out into the Atlantic.

Good news is this system will cause no impacts to land and stay out over the open waters.

Hurricane season officials ends November 30th.
