Showers and storms will return to Acadiana in response to another area of low pressure developing and advancing northeastward through the region Friday.
While dynamics will be much weaker than the Christmas Day system, upper level wind profiles will be strong enough to prompt the Storm Prediction Center to hatch all of Acadiana in a "slight risk" for severe weather.
The main mode of any severe weather should be primaraly in the form of damaging winds and hail, although an isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out in the outlook area.
"Prime-time" for shower and storm activity will be from early to mid-morning through the mid-latter part of Friday afternoon.
Temperatures will once again warm into the low-mid 70s ahead of the low pressure system but then will drop back to more winter-like numbers for the weekend.
Highs this weekend will be in the low-mid 50s under mostly sunny skies with another light freeze expected Sunday morning.
More quick changes are anticipated early next week with showers and storms likely for the area for New Year's Eve and Day.
