Acadiana will finish off the weekend in fine weather fashion with another fair to partly cloudy and warm day.

Look for some clouds to build in the area overnight through Sunday morning with lows closer to the mid-60s.

Sunday will be marked by some morning cloudiness giving way to plenty of intervals of sun in the afternoon. Temperatures will be a little warmer, in the mid-80s, while the humidity should also begin to creep upward.

ore clouds will move in for Sunday night, and perhaps the risk of some fog, with lows closer to the upper 60s Monday morning.

Monday will be similar to Sunday except for more morning cloudiness followed by a sun and cloud mix for the afternoon. Temperatures Monday will again reach the mid-80s.

Tuesday will be our warmest day of the week with highs reaching the upper 80s, to perhaps 90 degrees in a few northern portions of Acadiana ahead of a weak frontal boundary that arrives Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

Expect a few showers and possibly a thunderstorm overnight Tuesday ending early Wednesday morning...we are not expecting any kind of severe weather threat nor heavy rainfall...rain chances will be in the 30-40% range.

The latter part of Wednesday, all of Thursday and Friday look rather nice and warm...there should be some morning cooling behind the front, perhaps into the upper 50s, Thursday morning.

A few showers and/or a thunderstorm will return to the forecast Friday night int early next Saturday morning with another weak front...again not expected to be a big "weather-maker".

In spite of temperatures nearing 90 Tuesday, at least the KATC 10 Day Forecast still has a few mornings with lows dropping into the upper 50s...enjoy them, as their days are numbered!

Finally, on a long-range note toward the 10-12 day time-frame: it appears that some deeper tropical moisture wants to begin to "pool" in the Gulf of Mexico...while I don't expect any tropical development at this time, it does show a signal that we may segue into more of a summer-like, tropical pattern for at least several days into mid-month.

By the way...tropical season will begin June 1st!
