There will be a decent chance of scattered showers and a few thunderstorms overnight into Sunday, but it will be warming back up, and the week ahead looks to be the warmest of the year to date.
In the near term, a warm front will advance northward from the Gulf of Mexico across Acadiana into tomorrow.
And in concert with a couple of upper disturbances rolling in from the west, there will be the chance of scattered showers and a few thunderstorms overnight and then again for Sunday.
Highest rain chances look to manifest in the central and northern part of the state Sunday into early next week.
After a day where overcast skies and cooler temperatures in the mid-60s dominated Saturday, temperatures will hold nearly steady overnight and be heading for the upper 70s to near 80 Sunday afternoon.
In addition, there will likely be some breaks in the cloud cover Sunday afternoon with a few intervals of sun to help cheer us up.
With moist southerly winds returning Sunday afternoon, it appears there will be the chance of fog Sunday night int Monday morning, especially closer to the coast.
The week ahead will see lower rain chances, more intervals of afternoon sunshine and temperatures rising well into the mid-80s while overnight lows reside closer to the upper 60s to lower 70s.
These temperatures will be some 10-15 degrees above the March "normals" of highs in low-mid 70s and lows in the low-mid 50s!
A weak frontal boundary will get closer to the area next weekend into the early part of the following week allowing for more clouds, better rain chances and at least slightly cooler, but perhaps, still above normal temperatures.

Finally in the "Good news/bad news" department...tree pollen was down in Acadiana Saturday, but it will be coming back in full force Sunday, and likely big time into next week as temperatures soar well into the mid-80s.
