Patchy fog as been the only real talking point in the weather the passed few days, and Friday night will be no exception. The increase in fog is due in part to a ridge of high pressure sitting in the Gulf of Mexico pumping in warm moist air into the region.
Not only is this set up part of the reason behind the fog but has also made a nice bubble of warm air on top of Acadiana. Temperatures will remain around 10 degrees above average with highs this weekend expected to crack up into the low to mid 70s again.
This makes for a nice little oasis away from winter as the rest of the country deals with some bitterly cold temperatures, particularly in the northeast. Despite staying warmer then normal we could see a slight increase in clouds on Saturday and Sunday, but for the most part skies will stay mostly sunny.
Slight rain chances return the middle of next week with the latest cold front, this could also knock temperatures back down to seasonal.
