More pleasant temperatures and humidity will return to Acadiana by Tuesday morning as a weak front pushes through the area...and as an added bonus, a stronger fall front will arrive later this week.

The first front will pass through Acadiana Monday night with little fanfare other than some clouds and a wind shift.

Look for temperatures by morning to drop into the upper 50s for the northern Acadiana parishes, to the mid 60s farther south.

Tuesday will by a breezy and pleasant day under mostly sunny skies accompanied by lower humidity.

Highs Tuesday will still manage to reach the upper 70s to lower 80s.

It should be even cooler Tuesday night with lows dropping into the low-mid 50s area-wide.

More sunshine with temperatures topping out in the lower 80s are expected Wednesday.

It will be briefly warm and become more humid Thursday before a strong fall front arrives Thursday night into Friday morning.

It will certainly feel like fall by Friday with lingering clouds, gusty northerly winds accompanied by temperatures perhaps not making out of the 60s!

This weekend will be stellar with sunny skies with highs in the 70s while lows drop into the refreshing upper 40s for Saturday morning.

The tropics are relatively quiet with a weak disturbance east of the Eastern Caribbean showing very limited potential for development over the next couple of days...and will be no threat to the Gulf of Mexico.

Farther down the road, models and in particular the GFS, continue to show some potential for a system to develop in the western or northwestern Caribbean in the 12-14 day period so we'll keep on eye on that area...especially toward the weekend.

If anything were to develop down the road, climatology dictates that if a system would try to advance toward the Gulf, the upper level westerlies would want to turn the system to the northeast or east, so the Caribbean Islands through Bahamas and the Florida Peninsula should remain vigilant.

A couple of weeks later, it would not be surprising to see another Caribbean threat develop as the 2020 hurricane season may continue to deliver well into mid-November.
