After a cool and quiet weekend Acadiana will be prepping for the next system that is now scheduled to move through late Wednesday.
Out ahead of the front temperatures will be rising to slightly above normal with highs in the upper 70s and even low 80s. Moisture will start to ride along the back edge of the ridge which means there will be a slight increase in humidity as well.
As for the rain chances are very slim for Monday, but will be getting better as the week goes on. It would not be a surprise to see some scattered, summer-like, afternoon showers. The front will approach on Wednesday with clouds increasing and the rain arriving Wednesday evening.
Tropical moisture from Tropical Storm Sonia, in the Pacific, will get injected into the system so there is potential for significant rainfall. As of Sunday it looks like the atmosphere will be stable enough to limit serious convection so severe weather is not expected.
Once the system passes the skies will be quick to clear so don't expect much wet weather hanging around on Thursday.
