Scattered showers will dot the area during the morning as a cold front moves through. The rain will occur on the cooler side of the front as the warm moist air rides over the front. This over running event will bring gray skies and occasional rain during the morning. Rainfall totals should stay below one inch.
As the front moves away, skies will clear as dry air moves in. This afternoon winds will pick up in the 15-25mph range so a wind advisory will be in effect for the coastal parishes and a small craft advisory will be in effect offshore.
Tonight the skies will be clear and temperatures will be very cool. Lows will drop into the lower 50s. Records will be threatened, but probably not broken. The record low for Thursday morning is 48 here in Lafayette.
The rest of the week and the weekend looks great. Sunshine with highs near 80 and lows in the 50s and low 60s.
