Lots of sunshine this week; changes this weekend

Posted: Updated:

Acadiana will see a very pleasant week weather-wise with lots of sunshine accompanied by nearly seasonably temperatures through mid-week.

Temperatures will warm the rest of the week into Saturday ahead of a cool front that will sweep through the area early this weekend.

Look for highs over the next few days in the mid-70s while night time/morning lows reside mostly in the low-mid 50s.

Afternoon readings will approach the upper 70s to lower 80s Thursday, Friday and perhaps Saturday, depending on the timing of the aforementioned cool front.

No significant chance of rain is in the forecast through Friday, but there could be a 20-30% chance of a few showers, perhaps a thunderstorm Saturday, but models have been trending to not much in the way of significant rain chances.

Look for partly cloudy skies Saturday with breezy and cooler conditions moving into the area for Saturday evening/night.

The temperature swings Saturday may go from near the low 80s midday, into the mid- to upper 40s by Sunday morning!

Look for sunny, breezy and cool conditions Sunday with highs topping out in the mid-upper 60s.

It gets more interesting moving into Thanksgiving week with a brief warm-up anticipated by Tuesday, followed by a fairly good chance of rain developing Tuesday night into Wednesday, as a stationary/warm frontal boundary moves northward out of the Gulf of Mexico.

There may be some jet stream dynamics involved next Wednesday (the big holiday travel day), with scattered showers and storms possible not only across Louisiana, but including the Houston and Dallas airport hubs, so brace for delays, should you be utilizing air travel.

A good soaking could be possible for Acadiana next Wednesday, but it is way too early to have any estimations on rain totals.

At this point, Thanksgiving Day is a tough call...most of the precipitation should move out of the area with cooler conditions moving back in following Wednesday's system.

Right now it appears that highs in the mid-60s is the call temperature-wise, but it remains unclear as to whether the skies will clear in time for the carving of the bird.
