Cool Start Sunday, Quick Warm Up

It was a chilly start to Saturday with all of Acadiana seeing 50s and strong northerly breeze. The sun broke out to warm temperatures into the 70s for the afternoon. Temperatures tonight will fall into the upper 50s again with less wind.

Tonight: A few clouds. Chilly.  Low: 50°

Sunday: Sun and clouds. Warmer. High: 80°

Sunday Night: Increasing clouds. A stray shower is possible. Low: 65°

A warm front pushes onshore Sunday night into Monday morning, bringing return flow off the Gulf. This will raise overnight lows and bring in the muggies once again. Highs through mid week will be in the low-to-mid 80s each day, depending on cloud cover and rain coverage. Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are possible each day before a cool front arrives by late week. The front sits offshore, keeping clouds and at least a few rain chances around the area through next weekend. Lows late week will be in the upper 50s and low 60s. In the tropics, Melissa transitioned to a fully tropical system, but it is headed out away from the New England coast finally. Two other areas being monitored both have a low chance of development in the next 5 days. The first is in the Caribbean, but cold fronts will keep this from impacting Acadiana as it will sit off the Honduran, Guatemalan, and Belize coastlines. The second, a disturbance over Africa, will head out into the open Atlantic once it emerges off the African coast.
