A cool front will keep cloudy & chilly conditions in Acadiana for the finish of 2013 and the start to the new year.
Temperatures will stay in the lower 50s for the daytime hours of our Monday and and mostly the upper 40s for New Year's Eve with temperatures dropping into the upper 30s for both Tuesday & Wednesday mornings.
A few light sprinkles/showers will be possible across the area Monday, but it should be generally dry into the evening/overnight hours.
Clouds will linger in the area for Tuesday and New Year's Day as the remnant frontal boundary becomes stationary and then drifts northward Wednesday.
The northward drifting front should produce some showers in the region, especially coastal parishes Wednesday, Wednesday night into early Thursday morning.
Skies should clear late Thursday with fair and seasonably cool conditions Friday & Saturday. Showers could return Sunday.
The long range pattern through the first two weeks of January appears to keep near or below normal temperatures for much of the eastern two thirds of the U.S. and portions of the Gulf South.
