An area of low pressure and associated warm front will lift northeast out of the Gulf of Mexico tonight and tomorrow. The most rain we will see out of this storm is in southeastern Acadiana with a few brief, passing showers at best. Then, look for a partly sunny sky on Friday with mild conditions as temps climb to near 70. A weak cool front moves through on Saturday with a brief northerly wind setting up. However, that will quickly be replaced by southerly flow and warmer air for Sunday. This will also mean an increase in moisture ahead of the next very strong cold front set to move through on Monday. It will be overcast to start the workweek and Monday is looking to be an all-day washout, although rainfall amounts will be light. The bigger story will be the sharp drop in temps into Tuesday as at least 20 degrees temperature drops can be expected with even colder air moving in for midweek. Highs will struggle to reach the low 50s in some cases and lows will flirt with the upper 20s at times overnight.
