Atlantic high pressure will hold on Sunday to ensure that we will have a lovely Mother's Day.

As we head back to work on Monday, expect our unsettled weather to continue.

Tonight: Isolated evening storms, ending overnight. Monday Night: Mostly cloudy - low around 69. Highs will warm to the mid and upper 80s. Tuesday: 20 percent chance of showers/thunderstorms after 1 pm, partly sunny - high near 92.

As expected, communities in Iberia, St. Martin and St. Mary parishes saw a few isolated showers this afternoon, providing some beneficial rainfall. Sunday: Mostly sunny - high near 94 with west wind 6 to 8 miles per hour. Instead of spotty occasional showers, like experienced this weekend, they'll be a little easier to time out.

Temperatures started in the 30s and 40s and will only warm up to the mid-50s.

With heavy rain chances, there is the potential for flooding. Skies will be a mix of sun and clouds throughout the day, but highs will still reach into the mid-80s again.

A few showers overnight, mainly north.

Tonight the low will be 45° with a continued chance of scattered light rain.
