Some really nice weather is on tap for Acadiana over the next couple of days, with a "real" taste of fall on the way later this week.

Wednesday will be a nice one for starters, with temperatures starting out in the 50s.

Look for wall to wall sunshine for our Wednesday afternoon accompanied by comfortable humidity and highs reaching back into the lower 80s.

It should be milder going into Wednesday night into Thursday morning as light southerly winds re-establish across the area...lows Wednesday night will likely be limited to the low-mid 60s.

Another nice day is expected Thursday, with a few more clouds and perhaps a slight chance of a shower ahead of a strong cool front that should arrive by daybreak Friday.

Highs Thursday will be a little the mid-80s.

A few light showers may be possible with and following the front into Friday...and with lingering clouds Friday and a blustery north wind, it's really going to feel like fall.

Highs Friday will likely be limited to the 60s...while temperatures Friday night into Saturday morning will be flirting with the upper 40s.

The weekend looks great and mostly sunny at this time with highs Saturday in the low-mid 70s warming back into the lower 80s Sunday ahead of another front early next week.

See the KATC 10 Day Forecast for the latest.

The tropics overall remain relatively quiet with a weak disturbance east of the Eastern Caribbean showing very limited potential for development over the next day or so.

This disturbance will be of no threat to the Gulf of Mexico and is limited or no potential beyond mid-week.

Farther down the road, models and in particular the GFS continues to show some potential for a storm/hurricane to develop in the western or northwestern Caribbean in the 10-12 day time-frame.

If anything were to develop in this area, climatology dictates that even if a system would try to advance toward the Southern Gulf, the upper level westerlies would want to turn the system sharply to the northeast or east, so the Caribbean Islands through Bahamas, and perhaps the Southern Florida Peninsula (and Keys) are still planted in this never-ending hurricane season.
