Acadiana's weather pattern will continue to slowly get back to a normal late summer pattern as rain chances gradually lower into next week.

Do expect another healthy round of scattered showers and storms for the area Saturday with rain chances near the 60% range.

Best time for the shower activity will be from mid-morning into the mid-afternoon hours.

Much the same could be said for Sunday with rain chances closer to 40-50%.

Highs this weekend will be in the mid-upper 80s.

It will stay warm and quite humid at night thanks to the lingering moisture on the ground from Laura, so our sweaty window pattern will continue!

Gradually drier air aloft will works in way into the region into next week allowing rain chances to drop after Monday and get closer to 20% on any given day through Friday.

Daytime highs will get back closer to 90 while overnight lows stay planted in the mid-upper 70s.

Toward the end of next week a fizzling frontal boundary could bring slightly more comfortable overnight lows bear 70 into next weekend.

For now next weekend looks rather nice and perhaps feeling a little more September-like.

See the KATC 10 Day forecast for the latest.

As for the tropics (and we hate to talk about this at this time, but in the interest of staying informed), there are three tropical waves the National Hurricane Center (NHC) is tracking, with low to medium chances of two of these systems developing.

The third wave in between the two disturbances also looked impressive on satellite imagery Friday afternoon and may garner some attention in future NHC updates.

For now there are no threats to the Gulf of Mexico through mid-next week, but it remains too early to tell whether any of these systems could be potentially Gulf threats.
