With the cool front pushing out into the Gulf of Mexico drier, more comfortable air is filtering down into Acadiana giving us a little taste of fall.

Lows Wednesday will dip down into the the mid to upper 60s.

We will also still have a decent breeze out of the north most of the evening/night which will make it feel really nice Wednesday morning, causing some to maybe need a jacket or sweater.

Wednesday looks fantastic with a full day of sunshine, low humidity and highs in the low to mid 80s.

Thursday will be our coolest morning with lows in the low to mid 60s.

With winds dying down Thursday afternoon and another bright sunny day our temperatures should warm a couple more degrees topping out in the upper 80s but humidity levels will still be quite low for summertime.

Thus, if you have been putting off any outdoor chores the next couple days will be the days to get them down.

We should get a third morning with lows dipping into the 60s on Friday.

For the most part Friday will be another pleasant day with mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 80s to near 90s.

Friday afternoon/evening some tropical moisture will start to creep back over the lower portions of Acadiana and could squeeze out a few showers and storms south of I-10.

Rain chances increase up to 40% for everyone this weekend as the front/trough works back out of the Gulf and over the South Louisiana producing times of hit or miss showers and storms.

Next week the typical summer weather returns to Acadiana with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s under partly sunny skies and a 30-40% chance for pop-up showers and storms during the afternoon.

In the tropics the National Hurricane Center will be watching the northern Gulf as the latest models are now hinting that a weak area of low pressure could develop along a stalled front in the Gulf later this week.

Right now the hurricane center is only giving this potential low a 20% chance that it could possibility become subtropical or tropical.

If anything would develop it would not head for Acadiana.
