High pressure begins to give way to an approaching frontal system on Tuesday, helping to increase cloud cover through the afternoon and evening. High temperatures will still be slightly above average. Scattered showers and storms will move in associated with the cold front late Tuesday into Wednesday. Severe storm potential is rather low, but areas of Acadiana are in the marginal (1 out of 5) category for severe weather. Conditions improve by Thursday, as sunny skies return and temperatures steadily increase through the remainder of the workweek. Highs will be breaking into the 90s by Saturday with highs near 92° by Sunday. It does seem like summer is beginning to creep in over the weekend.
