Spring-like Friday, weekend cooling trend

Posted: Updated:

After another round of fog through Friday morning, a spring-like day is expected for the last day of the week, with a cooling trend anticipated for this weekend into Christmas day.

At press time, a Dense Fog Advisory is in effect for the coastal parishes of Acadiana from midnight through 9 am Friday.

A fog advisory for Eastern Louisiana is from 9 pm through noon, and coastal Southeast Louisiana from now until noon. Visibility will be lowest near entire coast and farther to the southeast.

Visibility could be reduced farther inland as well with a possibly northward extension of the advisory for the rest of Acadiana possible overnight.

After the morning fog Friday, Acadiana will see mostly cloudy skies accompanied by a few intervals of afternoon sun pushing the mercury into the upper 70s.

The record high temperature by the way for December 22 in Lafayette is 81F set in 1970.

Changes will be on the way in the form of scattered showers and possibly a few storms associated with a cool front overnight Friday into early Saturday morning.

Rain chances should be highest prior to daybreak Saturday, but some lingering showers will be possible at last through noon.

Rain totals should be less than an inch on most spots, perhaps closer to one half inch or less, but that could change. No severe weather is anticipated with the frontal boundary either.

Temperatures will cool and stay into the upper 50s to lower 60s Saturday and drop into the mid-40s Saturday night.

Skies should become partly sunny Sunday, with breezy and eventually cooler conditions on the way as a secondary cool front and stronger high pressure builds into the region.

This will bring the coldest air to the area for Christmas morning with lows in the mid-upper 30s expected, and under clear skies...perfect delivery weather for Santa!

Sunny and cool conditions are forecast for Christmas Day with highs in the mid-upper 50s.

The rest of next week looks more unsettled with clouds and some daily rain chances developing late Tuesday through next Saturday.

While it may become milder late next week, another chill down is expected for the last weekend of 2017...right now New Years Eve looks chilly and dry...but that is certainly subject to change, especially here in Acadiana.
