If feels like it has been years since the sun has come out here in Acadiana, but the forecast finally calls for some clearing skies starting on Thursday.
Until then, however, clouds will remain with a firm grasp on south Louisiana and this time will provide showers across the area. Light rains have already moved through early Wednesday morning to start the New Year, but more rainfall is on the way.
Wednesday evening a cold front will push across the area bringing a round of heavier and steadier rains. One or two showers could linger on into the early morning hours of Thursday.
Thursday is when we start to see a change in the weather with the skies clearing and some cold air being driven into the region. Temperatures are expected to dip below freezing Friday morning and could be the start of a cold weather outbreak.
The next cold front is threatening to move across by the end of the weekend and could spell some very cold conditions for the start of next week. There are still several days for all the details of this next system to reveal themselves but it would be wise to get those winter coats ready.
