A big pattern change is in store for Acadiana next week. Monday will see warm temperatures again, but a cold front will move through in the afternoon hours. Ahead of the front, showers and storms will be possible. Once the front moves through, drier air finally pushes in and temperatures will begin to fall. Lows Tuesday morning will range from the upper 50s inland to mid 60s along the coast. High temperatures Tuesday will top out in the low-to-mid 80s with plenty of sunshine. The cooler weather will quickly move on and warmer, more humid air returns by Wednesday afternoon. The warmth will only be around for a few days before a stronger cold front pushes through the area on Friday. Lows behind that front look to be in the 50s for all of Acadiana just in time for the weekend! There are two areas to monitor in the tropics, both in the Atlantic. Both haven’t even formed yet. Around mid-week, low pressure will form out in the open waters of the Atlantic. It will have a medium chance of development next week, but it will stay over open waters. The second area to monitor is off the East Coast. A low looks to form off the Carolina coast and move north. As it does so, there is a low chance of development before it gets absorbed into the jet stream. The next names up would be Melissa and Nestor.
