More gray, damp days are ahead as quick moving areas of low pressure roll into Acadiana. Showers already have formed out ahead of the next system in Texas and will move into Acadiana later today generally after 3 p.m. These will mainly be light showers, but some embedded heavy rain pockets are possible, too. With cloud cover and a southerly breeze, temperatures will struggle for most of the day and will only reach the lower 60s later this afternoon. Look for heavier rain to move into the region after sunset, with some rumbles of thunder possible. Temperatures will hold steady overnight in the lower 50s as the showers move through. The rain will have cleared Acadiana by sunrise Wednesday.
Today: Cloudy and cool. Showers develop in the afternoon. High: 62°
Tonight: On/off showers. A rumble of thunder is possible. Low: 51°
Wednesday: Mostly cloudy and cool. Breezy. High: 58°
Wednesday will see cloudy skies with a few peaks of sun. Temperatures will struggle to get into the upper 50s. By Thursday, our next system approaches from the west, kicking off showers in the afternoon. Rain chances continue overnight and into the morning Friday before drier air moves in. Colder air spills into Acadiana overnight as temperatures fall into the lower 40s, with upper 30s likely north of I-10. High pressure builds in and clears the area of cloud cover by lunchtime Saturday. A chilly breeze will help keep temperatures in the upper 50s Saturday afternoon. Sunday will be very pleasant with plenty of sunshine and temperatures in the mid 60s. By Monday, another fast moving system rolls into Acadiana bringing more rain chances in the afternoon hours. Highs will approach 70°.
