The never ending summer will linger in Acadiana for one more day with highs in the lower 90s under partly sunny skies on Sunday.

Like the past couple days there will be a slight chance for a few isolated showers to bubble up during the afternoon/evening.

Monday is the day we are all excited about as our first cool front of the season will swing through the region producing a few scattered showers/storms but the bigger thing is cooler and drier air will be sliding into Acadiana.

The pleasant temperatures look to arrive by the afternoon with highs only top out in the low to mid 80s and lows Tuesday morning dropping down into the low to mid 60s.

Tuesday we will have our first fall-like day of the season with highs in the low to mid 80s and cool, afternoon breeze.

Wednesday temperatures will start to warm up under a full day of sunshine as highs will climb into the mid to upper 80s but the humidity levels should remain on the low side.

Summer tries to make a quick return to the region on Thursday as highs warm into the upper 80s to near 90.

To end out the work week we are watching our next cold front.

This front looks to have a deeper dip in the jet stream pulling down cooler, more fall-like temperatures.

Now the long range models are still trying to figure out when this second front will swing through Acadiana.

The GFS model brings the front through the Bayou state Friday afternoon while the Euro is slower with the front not coming until Saturday morning.

Either way this front looks to produce some much needed rain as it pushes through the region.

But the best news is sweater weather arrives for Festival Acadian with highs in the 70s on Saturday and Sunday and lows dipping down into the low to mid 50s.

The other good news is these fall cold front should help to shut down the tropics in the Gulf moving forward but the National Hurricane Center is watching a couple areas in the Atlantic as there are a couple non-tropical low pressure systems developing along a front off the east coast.

These system only have a low to medium chance of breaking away from the front and developing tropical characteristics over the next 5 days.
