A strong cold front will produce showers and some strong storms across Acadiana early Monday morning with much colder temperatures moving into the region through mid-week.
While no large scale severe weather is expected, some storms could be strong with gusty winds and isolated hail possible.
After morning storms, clouds will linger as breezy north winds usher in much chillier conditions. Mild early morning temperatures in the 60s will plummet into the low-mid 50s Monday afternoon.
Skies will clear by Monday evening. Temperatures will likely drop into the upper 30s by Tuesday morning, not including the chill factor while highs will stay in the low-mid 50s Tuesday afternoon in spite of partly sunny skies.
Another disturbance will race through the area Tuesday night engendering plenty of clouds through Wednesday morning with the slight possibility of light precipitation late Tuesday night. This system will likely produce much more rain east of the Acadiana region.
Fair skies and seasonably cold temperatures will conitnue Thursday but more quick changes and rain chance are anticipated Friday into the early weekend.
