It hasn't been the easiest task trying to pin point the forecast for this upcoming weekend, such is the nature of dealing with upper level systems.

After initially looking like we were going to have a pretty wet start to the weekend earlier this week the rain chances have actually been trending down over the last couple of days.

The EURO was the first to catch on to this and the other models now seem to be following suit and it now looks like the showers will heavily favor the western half of Louisiana, and will be more scattered for the Acadiana region.

As an upper level disturbance moves over the area late Saturday night it may spark a few thunderstorms Saturday evening, which will likely continue into the latter half of the weekend.

Along with this will be a front that seems to be stalling just to our north west and will sit stationary for a few days keeping the doors open for more ill defined disturbances to spark showers through into early parts of next week.

Feeding these systems will be a steady stream of moisture coming in from the south and dewpoints have been rising the last 24 hours, which will keep it pretty cloudy over the next couple of days.

Temperatures will be warm hovering around normal this weekend in the upper 70s courtesy of some of the extended cloud cover we're going to be looking at, but by the middle of next week we may see our first 90 degree day.
