After a stormy and windy Easter Sunday, Acadiana we'll get to enjoy breezy and cooler conditions to start the new week.
After windy conditions and the threat of a few lingering storms, especially for northern portions of Acadiana early Sunday evening, look for partly to mostly cloudy skies and eventually cooler conditions by morning.
A couple of storms early this evening, especially toward Central Louisiana, could still produce some hail and gusty winds.
Storms earlier Sunday produced some sporadic wind damage and up to quarter-size hail and spots, mainly in Lafayette Parish with several trees downed in the area as well.
Overall, the big severe weather outbreak, manifested from Northeast Louisiana into Mississippi where several damaging tornadoes have been reported as of early Sunday evening including the Monroe area where damage was reported on the east side of town and at the airport.
Locally, gusty southwest to westerly winds will continue through Sunday evening but should abate overnight before a cool front arrives early Monday.
Some lingering clouds are anticipated early Monday but will likely yield to sunshine in the afternoon.
After a morning start in the upper 50s, it will be breezy Monday with temperatures topping out in the lower 70s accompanied by much more comfortable humidity.
Overall the pattern for the "work" week is looking quite nice with near or below normal temperatures accompanied by fair to partly cloudy skies with minimal rain chances.
It appears the next good chance of showers and some storms will arrive sometime next weekend.
