Winter made a brief return to Acadiana on Sunday but have the rain gear ready as you head back to school and work Monday morning as a warm front will slide out of the Gulf and over Acadiana during the overnight hours producing scattered showers and a few storms.
Showers will last til about lunchtime before the warm front drifts farther north pushing the rain out of Acadiana.
As this front lifts north mild temperatures will return as highs top out in the upper 60 to near 70 Monday afternoon.
Then keep the umbrella handy on Tuesday because the warm front will transition into a stationary front and move back south over Acadiana producing another round of hit or miss showers.
And thanks to the southerly flow off the Gulf it will feel like spring Tuesday afternoon with highs in the mid 70s.
The warm temperatures will continue for the rest of the work week with highs in the mid to upper 70s Wednesday through Friday.
However due to the sub-tropical jet streaming over the region high clouds will linger over Acadiana so don't expected much sunshine this week.
And with the clouds and Gulf moisture in the air a few stray showers will still be possible Wednesday through Friday afternoon.
Our next cold front moves through Saturday morning producing a few scattered showers but more importantly colder air will get ushered in to Acadiana.
Temperatures will fall throughout the day on Saturday dropping into the upper 50s by the afternoon.
Lows Sunday morning will dip down into the upper 30s to lower 40s.
Sunshine finally comes back out on Sunday but it will be a cold winter day with highs in the mid 50s.
Below normal temperatures continue into the following week with highs holding in the mid 50 Monday through Wednesday.
