Temperatures will be running above normal across Acadiana during the upcoming week.

Linger shower activity will start to come to an end on Sunday evening.

That will give way to partly cloudy skies and eventually clearing skies later on in the night and into Monday morning as low temperatures drop into the mid-60s.

Some spots of patchy fog will be possible as some lingering moisture remains in place.

Finally, the pesky upper-level disturbance that delivered the scattered showers over the weekend has started to move out of the area.

Drier air is starting to filter in on the backside and that will pave the way for a relatively quiet week ahead albeit temperatures will be running several degrees above normal (not feeling like November...).

Temperatures will be climbing into the lower 80s each afternoon with overnight lows remaining mainly in the 60s.

Fair to partly cloudy skies can be expected throughout the week.

Next cold front is still on track to arrive by next weekend. We will continue to watch how the pattern evolves in the days ahead.

In the tropics: Tropical Storm Eta continues to have winds of 65 mph as it nears the Florida Straits.

It is forecasted to become a hurricane on Monday afternoon as it enters the eastern Gulf of Mexico.

It will then meander around for a couple of days before moving more northeastward by late week in response to a trough that will be pushing in from the west.

Eta continues to be no threat to Acadiana, but of course, we will continue to keep an eye on it.
