Plenty of cloud cover, scattered showers, primarily for Tuesday, and spring-like temperatures are in the forecast for Acadiana this week, and likely into the weekend too.

A weak disturbance passing through the area Monday will continue to produce scattered rain shower activity into Monday night with activity gradually dissipating after midnight.

Thereafter, with a light southeasterly wind, look for the possibility of some sea fog moving into the area, with best chance of lower visibilities closer to the coast and near bodies of water.

Temperatures will level off in the milder low to mid 60s by morning.

Another weak disturbance will traverse the Acadiana area tomorrow sparking off a few more showers, possibly a thunderstorm into the afternoon. Rain chances should be close to 40%, and perhaps a little higher in spots.

Temperatures Tuesday will likely top out in the mid-70s.

Look for another mild evening Tuesday night into Wednesday morning with a better chance of fog developing by Wednesday morning.

Wednesday through Saturday look to stay mostly cloudy and a little warmer with rain chances down to 20% or less on any given day along with a few limited opportunities of a few intervals of afternoon sun.

Highs Wednesday will be a few degrees warmer than Tuesday...pushing the 76-78 degree range.

Late night/early morning fog will probably stay in the forecast for any given day for the rest of the week.

Temperatures this week will rise from the mid to the upper 70s, but could hit/surpass 80 degrees on any given afternoon through Saturday accompanied by a few extended afternoon sun intervals if they should develop.

Heading into the weekend, a frontal boundary will sag southward toward the state with the Euro model stalling the front just north of the area, while the GFS model gets the front to the coast and cooling us this weekend...

For now, we'll go with an enhanced chance of scattered showers & perhaps a few thunderstorms Sunday (currently at 40%), but the 10 Day Forecast reflects a warmer and more spring-like forecast similar to the Euro model continuing beyond the weekend, and into a good part of next week as well.
