This evening through the overnight hours we will be watching for the possibility of a few scattered showers as the tail end of a cold front tries to work into south Louisiana.

This front boundary will then stall along the I-10 corridor on Sunday keeping a 30-40% for hit or miss showers and maybe a thunderstorm in the forecast, especially during the first half of the day, otherwise it will be warm and humid with temperatures in the mid 70s.

Monday looks to be similar to Sunday as the stationary front continues to located over top the region producing about a 20-30% for a few passing showers.

The frontal boundary should lift out of the area on Tuesday giving us a break from the rain but the clouds will still be around with warm temperatures in the upper 70s.

Most of Wednesday looks dry but it will be getting breezy with winds whipping out of the south at 15-25 mph and gusts up to 35 mph as we will be in the zone just ahead of the next strong cold front.

Like this weekends system the severe weather possibility with this front looks to be more to our north towards Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee.

That said we will have a good chance for scattered showers and a few storms Wednesday evening into early Thursday morning.

The front might actually stall out to our north Thursday afternoon giving us a break in the rain before the front begins to slide through Acadiana Thursday evening into Friday morning producing another round of showers and thunderstorms.

This front will be slow to clear the region meaning on and off showers will linger through much of the day on Friday before things finally begin to clear Friday evening just in time for Downtown Alive.

Light showers could continue into Friday before clearing out late in the day

However, if you plan on going to Downtown Alive dress warm as temperatures will be falling behind the front dropping into the 50s.

Next weekend looks dry with a fair amount of sunshine both days but it will be on the cooler side with highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s and morning lows dipping down into the low to mid 40s.
