In not-so-breaking-news, scattered showers and thunderstorms will remain in the forecast for Acadiana this weekend...but we should see a little more sunshine as rain chances edge slightly lower as compared with the activity this past week.

Look for a a few more intervals of sunshine mixed in with mostly cloudy conditions Saturday with scattered showers and some thunderstorms likely from late morning into the mid-afternoon...rain chances will be very close to 50%.

Temperatures should rise closer to the upper 80s Saturday and may push near 90° Sunday.

Sunday will guessed it...a roughly 50% chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms from mid-late morning into the afternoon hours.

Much of next week offers little overall change to the pattern, with some day to day variations, rain chances look to stay in the 40-50% range on any given day with highs in the upper 80s to the lower 90s depending on the onset of storms...which should generally be confined more toward the afternoon hours.

At least we do not see high levels of atmospheric moisture nor overt systems aloft or at the surface that could enhance our thunderstorm activity into next week...although there will be a fizzling front north of us Monday.
