The wet and dreary weather continues for the next 48 hours as a weak frontal boundary will be draped over the region creating the chance for a few hit or miss showers.

Otherwise it will just be cloudy, warm and muggy with temperatures hovering around the upper 60s to lower 70s on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Our best chance for widespread showers and storms will be Wednesday afternoon/evening as a cold front swings through Acadiana.

With this system we will have to watch for the potential of a few storms maybe turning strong to severe with damaging winds and large hail as the main threat but a weak spin-up tornado can not be ruled out.

The Storm Prediction Center has most of Acadiana under a slight risk (15%) for a couple severe storms but the main area of concern looks to be just to our NE over Mississippi where they are hatched in for an enhanced risk (30%) for severe weather.

This could be a slowing moving front so a few showers could linger into Thursday morning but overall Thursday looks to be cloudy, cool and breezy with temperatures in the 50s.

The only day we will have sunshine this week is Friday for Valentine's Day but don't let the sun fool you it will still be cool with highs in the upper 50s.

And at night temperatures will be falling into the upper 40s so dress warm as you head out to celebrate the holiday.

Clouds quickly return across Acadiana on Saturday and with winds flipping back out of the south we start to warm up with highs climbing to near normal in the mid 60s.

There is the chance for a few scattered showers Saturday so if you are planning on heading out to the Rio parade you might want to pack the rain gear just in case.

More showers are likely Sunday as another cold front tries to work down over the region.

Then into next week the cloudy and wet pattern continues as a few more systems will slide over the southeast.
