Acadiana can expected lots of sunshine and pleasant (not quite fall-lke) temperatures into this weekend with a more robust cool front on the way by Sunday.
In the near term, expect clear skies and seasonably cool temperatures across the area Friday morning with lows in the mid-50s.
Wall to wall sunshine will continue Friday with temperatures warming to near 80° again Friday afternoon.
Mostly sunny skies are also expected for Saturday with some high clouds likely beginning to move in during the afternoon.
High pressure will begin to slide to our east later Saturday allowing for a return of southeasterly winds, higher humidity and milder temperatures primarily into Saturday night and early Sunday.
Acadiana is still on track for a moderately sharp cool front to arrive around midday Sunday...a few scattered showers may accompany the front, but for now, rain chances aren't much higher than 20-30% over a brief couple of hour window.
Behind the front expect clear skies and seasonably fall-like temperatures to follow for much of next week.
Highs early next week will be suppressed down to the upper 60s to lower 70s while overnight lows dip into the refreshing mid-upper 40s.
The weather should stay sunny most if not all of next week as temperatures slowly moderate by the end of the week and into the following weekend.

Meanwhile in the tropics, while Tropical Storm Eta (with 40 mph winds) is now moving out toward the open Atlantic our tropical attention re-focuses back to the Caribbean...
An area of disturbed weather accompanied by weak, disorganized low pressure, is expected to become a depression, possibly a tropical storm by this weekend.
This system (which does have a chance of becoming a hurricane) will primarily impact portions of Central America, including but not limited to Nicaragua, Honduras and Belize by early next week.
This system is not expected to ever become a Gulf threat.
The next name on the Greek tropical list is "Iota".
