Scattered showers and the chance of a few isolated thunderstorms will stay in the forecast for Acadiana Friday ahead of a weak cool front that should set up a nice weekend.
Rain chances Friday will be similar to Thursday, in the 40-50% range.
Balmy fall temperatures will remain for another 24 hours with morning low temperatures Friday near 70.
Like Thursday morning, there could be some patchy fog in the region to start our day Friday.
Look for high readings Friday afternoon to once again reach the mid-80s.
The aforementioned cool front will traverse the area Friday night with a few showers possible...the front will fizzle to our south this weekend.
This weekend should be pretty nice with partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies accompanied by slightly lower temperatures...highs Saturday will be closer to the upper 70s to lower 80s while night time/morning temperatures drop into the low-mid 60s.
A relatively sedate weather pattern accompanied by slightly above normal temperatures and perhaps a few isolated showers will be possible early next week, but rain chances will likely be increasing mid-late week ahead of a stronger front that should arrive in a week bringing fall temperatures back to Acadiana for next weekend.

Meanwhile in the tropics, after becoming a major hurricane Wednesday, category 1 Hurricane Epsilon is moving east of Bermuda and will continue to advance toward the north Atlantic through this weekend, all the while maintaining hurricane status.
Farther southwest, in the the Western Caribbean, the National Hurricane Center continues to keep and eye on a trough of low pressure.
This system is producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms.
Some slow development of this system is possible during the next few days while it moves northeastward near western or central Cuba, the Straits of Florida and the Bahamas through the weekend.
No direct threat is anticipated from this system to the northern Gulf of Mexico...however some of its moisture may slip toward our region ahead of the aforementioned stronger front mid-late next week, perhaps enhancing our rain chances here in Acadiana.
