Well, we saw plenty of clouds across the region today as expected.

Highs climbed into the upper 70s.

The weather setup remains similar going into Sunday.

A ridge of high pressure remains in control across the Gulf waters which is keeping southwesterly flow aloft (milder pattern).

At the surface, southerly winds continue to bring in low-level moisture; thus, dew points have been on the rise.

You may have felt that there was a more muggy feel to the air out there today.

Expect that to continue heading into our Sunday as dew points remain in the upper 60s to near 70°.

Patchy fog will be possible late tonight (mainly along the coastal parishes), but with winds slightly more elevated tonight, the threat of dense fog appears to be lower.

Still, I would keep an eye out for it if you have to be on the roadways first thing in the morning.

Temperatures will be mild in the upper 60s.

There is not going to be any weather system moving in on Sunday, but with low-level moisture continuing to increase coupled with daytime heating, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a few spotty showers develop through the course of the afternoon.

Nothing that would cause too many issues or be overly heavy in nature, but chances are certainly non-zero.

I've got rain chances sitting at 30% as high temperatures climb into the upper 70s to near 80°.

Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies once again on Sunday.

A cold front will be approaching from the north going into Monday.

I think we will be caught in the warm sector JUST long enough to help get temperatures into the lower-mid-70s before the front pushes through later on in the day on Monday.

Scattered showers and a few rumbles of thunder will be possible for Monday afternoon, but the day does not look like a complete washout.

Severe threat is low as well.

That front will settle in the Gulf of Mexico before we see an upper-level disturbance approach late Monday night going into Tuesday.

Overrunning showers can be expected for Tuesday morning and perhaps extending into parts of the afternoon, but I think by late afternoon, the bulk of the shower activity starts to push out of the region.

It will be slightly cooler as well for Tuesday as afternoon highs settle into the mid-60s.

A half an inch to an inch of rainfall seems plausible at this time with this system although models differ slightly on rain totals.

Wednesday looks dry and cool.

Another feature will approach the area by late Thursday going into Friday helping to elevate our rain chances once again.

But, it looks like that feature will clear things out in time for next weekend.

We could see morning starts in the 40s with afternoon highs in the 60s by that time period as well.

Y'all have a great rest to the weekend!
