After a week of daily showers and storms several communities across Acadiana could finally dodge the rain Sunday and remain dry as a weak high pressure will slide over the northern Gulf just south of Louisiana.

By mid-week a ridge of high pressure looks to strengthen in Deep South which may bring rain chances down and allow temperatures will climb back into the low to mid 90s. Greatest chance for storms will be Sunday night into Monday.
