When we thought fall was here and the hot muggy conditions of summer were a thing of the past, mother nature had other ideas. Despite the wettest few days we have seen in several months, it looks like we're not out of the woods just yet.
Hanging around in the Gulf of Mexico is a renegade low which promises to bring another soaking to Acadiana. Although, not expected to bring quite the rainfall we saw this weekend, we may catch an additional inch of rain in some areas.
The low and associated warm front will move across the area Monday evening, and keep rain in the forecast through Tuesday. The heavier rain will be in eastern sections of Acadiana with much heavier rain from the Atchafalaya Basin eastward to New Orleans.
As its name suggests this warm front will also mean an end to the wonderful crisp temperatures we had this morning and promises to throw us back in the soup. Lows on Tuesday will be back in the 70s and low 90s return for the afternoon highs.
The good news is that after Tuesday the weather settles down and we'll have dry conditions through the week, with the next front slated to move through at the end of next weekend. Maybe then we'll catch those fall temperatures and be able to hold on to them.
