Above normal temperatures to continue through mid-week across Acadiana.

We'll see temperatures dropping back into the mid and upper 60s overnight tonight and into Wednesday morning under mainly clear skies.

Patchy fog will be possible one again across the region on Wednesday morning, so be on the lookout for that if you have to be on the roadways.

Any fog that does develop will burn off by mid-morning giving way to mostly sunny skies through Wednesday afternoon.

It'll be another warm one Wednesday afternoon with high temperatures topping out in the mid and even upper 80s in some spots (What month are we in?!).

The strong ridge that has been dominating the forecast will start to weaken a bit by late week which will provide a slightly better chance for us to see scattered showers on Thursday/Friday.

Still, rain chances will sit no better than 20-30% as high temperatures remain in the mid 80s.

Upcoming weekend looks good with no major issues... Rain chances stay low with highs ever so cooler in the lower 80s.

We stay warm through early next week, but then models continue to diverge on a solution for mid and late next week.

Therefore, an arrival of a front by mid-week is still in limbo. We will continue to watch for trends and wait for the guidance to come into better agreement.

Overall, a pretty quiet weather pattern for Acadiana the next several days.

In the tropics: Tropical Storm Epsilon continues to strengthen and is on the way to becoming the next hurricane of the season.

It will continue heading out to sea and pose no threat to Acadiana.

Elsewhere, the NHC continues to give an area in the NW Caribbean Sea a 10% chance to develop in the next 5 days.

Environmental conditions remain unfavorable for development.

It remains no threat to Acadiana.
