Grab your coats and layers heading into the weekend. Big changes within the next 24-36 hours as a very strong cold front sags to the south bringing a much cooler/chilly airmass to the region. Friday a front moving west to east will allow a chance for showers. Along and just ahead of the front we could see/hear a few thunderstorms. Expecting about 30% or less chance for rainfall. The front should clear Acadiana by Saturday morning.
Very strong cold air advection behind the front. Winds shifting from the north. This looks to be the coolest/chillest temps we will see so far this season. It could be quite chilly for some! Across central LA most locations will dip in the low 40s while some could fall in the upper 30s. Acadiana should see mostly the low 40s north and along I-10. Coastal parishes should stay a few degrees warmer falling in the mid 40s. Sunday and Monday mornings should be the chillest of days. Cool and dry condition prevail through the middle part of next week. Temps will slowly rebound during the latter part of next week as some low level moisture returns as high pressure shift towards the eastern US.
