More cold and dreary days ahead

Posted: Updated:

Scattered showers will continue tonight and linger into the first half of Wednesday with temperatures hovering around the low to mid 40s.

Wednesday afternoon a cold front will drop south through Acadiana pushing the showers out to sea but ushering in cooler and breezy conditions.

Temperatures will actually fall a couple degrees throughout the day as the front drops down into the area.

With overcast skies and the northerly breeze at about 10-15 mph it is going to feel quite chilly with wind chills on Wednesday only in the mid 30s.

The clouds will stick around on Thursday, along with a couple stray showers, but the winds will die down allowing temperatures to climb a few degrees into the upper 40s.

Sunshine looks to return Friday warming highs into the mid 50s.

Beyond Friday the models are still having some issues coming into agreement.

The European model has the next system arriving Saturday producing scattered showers with conditions improving by Sunday.

The GFS model shows our next cold front not sliding down into the region until Sunday afternoon bringing with it scattered showers.

This model has the showers continue into the evening hours which could interrupt your New Years Eve plans.

Right now I am going with the timing and think of the GFS model but continue to check back in the coming days for the latest updates.

Either way most models agree that temperatures will turn sharply colder for the new year with highs on New Years Day only in the low 40s and with a steady breeze out of the north it will feel near freezing most of the day.

Tuesday morning lows could drop into the low to mid 20s, meaning a hard freeze looks likely for all of Acadiana.

We will gradually begin to warm up next Wednesday with highs getting back closer to 50 before another round of showers could move in by Thursday.
