A cold light rain will continue overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning, but it does seem like there is an end in sight. After seeing incredible amounts of rain over the past few days the skies will slowly start to clear around late morning Wednesday.
This is certainly good news for the local waterways and without the constant rainfall flood waters will be allowed to slowly recede. The draining process will be aided by a fairly stiff breeze coming almost directly from the north over the next few days.
Temperatures, however, will remain on the cool side with lows both Tuesday and Wednesday night getting down into the low 30s. Early morning Thursday looks to be some of the coldest temperatures we have seen so far this winter. Highs across much of Acadiana won't be much warmer and will be in the lower 40s again for Wednesday.
Mostly sunny skies will be on tap for Thursday and much drier air will filter into Louisiana. This seems to be the pattern we will see into the weekend as well, so Saturday and Sunday should be sunnier and slightly warmer then what we have been seeing through the beginning of the week.
