After a chilly start Wednesday morning, expect a mostly sunny and milder afternoon with temperatures reaching the lower 70s.
Plenty of clouds will advance into the area Wednesday night in Thursday as a return flow from the Gulf of Mexico commences. As the warmer air from the Gulf advects northward there will be the chance of scattered showers into Thursday afternoon.
Highs Thursday will likely reach the upper 70s with temperatures threatening the lower 80s Friday ahead of the next strong cold fornt. Showers and a few storms will be possible Friday into Friday night.
Lingering clouds and chilly light rains will be possible early Saturday with clearing expected Saturday night into Sunday.
This weekend will feature winter-like temperatures (for Acadiana) with temperatures holding in the 50s Saturday with a biting north wind.
Lows could drop into the mid-upper 30s Saturday night into Sunday morning.
Fair and seasonably cold weather is expected Sunday into Monday but then it appears a vigorous storm system could get cranked-up in the Gulf of Mexico for Tuesday and/or Wednesday of next week.
This system could feature some strong thunderstorms and heavy rains...and if the timing works out, it appears that Thanksgiving will be fair and rather cold...numbers to be determined at a later time.
