Mostly cloudy skies and above normal temperatures will yield to a moderate cool front that will sweep across Acadiana Wednesday evening.
Scattered showers, perhaps an isolated thunderstorm, will be possible ahead and accompanying the front Wednesday afternoon into the evening hours.
The front will likely cross most of Acadiana starting from the west late Wednesday afternoon and then into the early evening hours for most of the Acadiana Parishes. The front will likely clear St Mary Parish by midnight.
A few showers will also follow the front for several hours with activity moving out of the area by daybreak Thursday.
Lingering clouds Thursday morning will yield to afternoon sun with breezy and cooler conditions likely to continue into Thursday evening.
Highs near 80 Wednesday will cool into the upper 50s to lower 60s Thursday morning with highs Thursday afternoon mostly in the upper 60s.
Lows will likely drop into the 40s for Friday and Saturday mornings.
Incidentally it will be breezy and cool for the Ragin Cajun game Thursday evening with temperatures likely falling into the 50s during the game.
Sunny conditions are expected Friday with plenty of mid- and high level clouds spilling back into the region from the west this weekend.
The front will move back northward as a warm front Saturday night into Sunday keeping plenty of clouds and returning the chance of showers this period.
Above normal temperatures and the risk of showers will be in the forecast mix through at least mid-next week.
