Drier has taken up residence across Acadiana with much lower humidity and cooler night time lows expected over the next few days.
Look for temperatures to drop into the mid-60s for most areas Thursday morning and the mid-upper 60s Friday morning.
Wall to wall sun for the daytime hours through Friday will bring afternoon highs to the lower 90s...but the humidity should stay quite comfortable.
A few more clouds and slightly higher humidity are expected for this weekend with rain chances likely holding off until early next week.
As Dave Baker mentioned in the previous article on KATC.com there looks to be substantially cooler weather on the way toward the end of next week into the following weekend.
The tropics remain very quiet and it should stay that way at least through the next 7-10 days.
Today's 12z GFS long range model does indicate there could be a substantial tropical system lurking in the NW Caribbean toward the end of the second week of October...overall model performance has not been that good this year while most tropical candidates have not materialized all season long.
Hurricane season doesn't end until November 30th and it would not be unusual for a Caribbean hurricane in mid-October...we'll see.
