A relatively weak front will pass through Acadiana Saturday night accompanied by scattered showers, while Sunday appears to be a pretty nice day, slightly cooler, and with more comfortable humidity.

Rain chances overnight with the front will be in the 40-60% range (higher numbers the farther north you go) with mostly scattered showers in the forecast, primarily after midnight.

There could be a few stronger thunderstorms develop along the front, especially from northern portions of Acadiana on into the northern part of the state, but there doesn't appear to be any substantial threat of severe storms.

Winds will shift out of the north overnight, ushering in slightly cooler readings into Sunday under a cloud & sun mix...it should be a pretty nice day!

After a morning start closer to the mid-60s look for temperatures to rise into the mid-upper 70s with 80 the projected high in Lafayette Sunday...which is still 5 degrees above normal.

Changes are in the offing for Acadiana next week with a warm front returning Monday generating scattered showers and a few thunderstorms into the afternoon.

A higher chance of rain and storms are expected Monday night as the next front arrives.

And with fairly robust upper level wind and moisture profiles, there could be a low end risk of severe storms for the area with the Storm Prediction Center having Acadiana hatched in for a marginal risk of severe storms.

Higher prospects of severe weather will likely be found in the northern part of the state Monday into Monday night from the ArkLaTex on eastward into Northern Mississippi.

Monday night's front will have more "oomph" to it with temperatures finally returning closer to normal with highs next week closer to the mid-upper 70s while more importantly, overnight lows drop into the refreshing 50s.
