Scattered showers and a few embedded thunderstorms will become likely for Acadiana Wednesday as a weakening cool front pushes through the area.
Best time for getting wet Wednesday will be from mid-morning through the mid-afternoon with rain totals mostly in the .25" to .50" range. Isolated totals near 1" or slightly more will be possible especially in northwestern sections of Acadiana.
Look for cooler conditions Wednesday afternoon/evening as gusty north winds behind the front bring Acadiana's temperatures into the 50s Thursday morning.
The cool front is expected to stall in the Gulf of Mexico Thursday and then slowly advance northward Friday into the weekend.
This feature should keep plenty of clouds in the forecast Friday into the weekend along with the slight chance of a few passing showers. Rain chances Friday through Sunday should be in the 20% range unless a stronger disturbance aloft slides through.
Cooler than normal temperatures Thursday into Friday should warm back in the lower 80s this weekend while night time temperatures warm back into the 60s.
