A fantastic day of weather across Acadiana on Saturday as highs settled into the upper 70s under plenty of blue skies.

It'll be another pleasant evening across the region with low temperatures dropping back into the mid 50s.

Another sun-filled day can be expected on Sunday although we'll see high temperatures a little warmer in the lower 80s.

Another very weak cold front will try to move through late on Sunday and into early Monday which will keep the relative nice weather conditions in place through early next week.

After that, we will not see another frontal passage at least in the foreseeable future.

As a result, temperatures will be cranking up for most of next week. We will be talking high temperatures back into the mid and upper 80s.

Rain chances stay fairly low for the entirety of the 10-day, but some amount of moisture will try to creep back into the region by late week.

In the tropics: Tropical Storm Gamma made landfall on the Yucatan Peninsula on Saturday.

The storm is forecasted to track into the Bay of Campeche by early next week where it will meander around for a few days.

The storm remains no threat to us here in Acadiana.

We are also tracking a disturbance moving through the central Caribbean Sea at this time.

The disturbance has a 60% chance to develop in the next 5 days as it tracks toward the southern Gulf of Mexico.

Some of the associated moisture will move into the central Gulf by the middle parts of next week.

We will have to closely monitor the progression of this system in the days ahead, but it is simply too early to tell where it will eventually end up.

Some guidance suggest that the system will weaken as it tries to move closer to the northern Gulf due to unfavorable environmental conditions.

Remember that uncertainty in the forecast grows once we get 7+ days out.

With that in mind, it is simply just an area we are watching at this time and nothing to be overly stressed about.

We will of course keep you updated with the very latest.
