Lots of sunshine and comfortable humidity remains in the forecast for Acadiana this weekend, but our afternoon high temperatures will climb back to the 90 degree mark...and it looks to get hotter into next week.

In the near term, another lovely evening is on tap for the area with overnight/morning lows a few degrees milder than the last couple of nights, in the mid-upper 60s.

Look for mostly sunny skies for our Saturday with a few occasional mid- and high-level clouds traversing through the area.

High temperatures Saturday will be approach 90.

It won't be as pleasant into Sunday morning with lows closer to the upper 60s to lower 70s.

More fair skies accompanied by afternoon readings in the upper 80s to lower 90s are anticipated for Sunday.

Moving into next week, the combination of an expanding upper level ridge and an upper low that will be advancing southward toward the Southeast U.S. will keep the pattern mostly dry for Acadiana, with high temperatures building closer to the mid-90s.

Rain chances on any given day over the next week will generally remain 10% or less.

By the end of the week and into the following weekend however, surface high pressure will begin to build into the Eastern Gulf of Mexico thereby allowing for more southerly winds resulting in higher humidity.

And in addition to the higher humidity and atmospheric moisture content, the chance of scattered afternoon showers and a few storms will be back in the forecast by next weekend.
