Acadiana will continue to enjoy non-stop sun and seasonably cool temperatures during the day accompanied by clear and chilly nights well into next week.

Look for lows across Acadiana to dip into the mid-40s Saturday morning as breezy winds from the north-northeast gradually diminish.

Highs will reach the lower 70s Saturday with light and variable winds as surface high pressure slides eastward across Southern Louisiana.

Lows Saturday night will be closer to the upper 40s to lower 50s with a light southeast winds ahead of our next cool front.

The weather for trick or treating Saturday night will be nice and cool with temperatures dropping from the 60s near sunset into the upper 50s by 9 or 10 pm.

Also look for a rising full Hunter's Moon, which is also a blue moon (2nd full moon of the month), while trick or treating after dark...a rarity for Halloween.

A dry front will push through the Acadiana area early Sunday bringing back gusty northerly winds and eventually chillier temperatures.

Highs Sunday will top out in the lower 70s but should plunge sharply into at least the mid-40s by Monday morning with gusty north winds making it feel even cooler.

More sunshine accompanied by highs in the 60s are expected Monday and Tuesday.

The coolest temperatures over the next 10 days will likely come Tuesday morning with lows dropping into the lower 40s for most...and perhaps the upper 30s for the northern Acadiana parishes.

Temperatures will moderate later next week and it looks dry into next weekend...temperatures will be getting back into the mid-upper 70-s later in the week and lower 80s for the following weekend.

The tropics remain relatively active with a disturbance south of Puerto Rico Friday given an 80% chance of development into a depression this weekend or early next week as it migrates toward the Western Caribbean.

For now we think this feature may fester in the Southwestern or Western Caribbean for a while with some potential impacts for Central America over the next 4-5 days.

The Caribbean (and perhaps the southwest Atlantic) looks to stay quite unsettled with potentially another tropical system developing beyond next week.

Climatologically speaking, any tropical systems would have a very hard time working their way toward the Southeastern Gulf of Mexico into mid-November, but this cannot be completely ruled out for now.

The next names on the supplemental Greek list are "Eta" and "Theta".
