Monday will see mostly cloudy to overcast skies with a 40% chance of rain likely knocking on our doorstep in the early morning hours.

Showers continue overnight on Monday with the chances upping to 50% and overnight low temps only falling to the low 60s.
More showers will be in the forecast for Tuesday on the order of 50% and these will likely arrive along and ahead of the cold front located to the northwest and will be pushing it's way into south Louisiana in the late evening and overnight hours on Tuesday.
