Another cool and gloomy day Thursday before sunshine returns Friday

Posted: Updated:

More of the same Thursday with lots of clouds and cool temperatures as highs will only top out in the mid 40s.

Friday high pressure moves over the region finally clearing out the clouds and allowing the sunshine to warm temperatures back into the mid 50s.

Unfortunately the sunshine is short lived as clouds slide back over Acadiana Saturday along with a few scattered showers during the afternoon out ahead of our next cold front.

The front will drop south through Louisiana on Sunday bringing with it a better chance for widespread scattered showers throughout the day.

The models still disagree a little on when the front will completely clear the region but either way it looks to be a damp and cold for New Years Eve as temperatures will be falling into the low to mid 30s.

Areas just to our north could even see some of the moisture change over the sleet or snow on New Years Eve as some very cold air moves down into the southeast.

Then to start 2018 Acadiana will get a good shot of Arctic air as highs New Years Day will struggle to reach the low 40s under mostly cloudy skies.

Also, it is going to be quite breezy on New Years Day with winds whipping out of the north at 15-25 mph making it feel at or below freezing for most of the day.

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

The winter chill continues Tuesday afternoon with highs only in the low 40s, although we should see a fair amount of sunshine.

Another cold start next Wednesday with lows in the upper 20s and low 30s but we should see temperatures get back into the lower 50s for highs.

Also, towards the second half of next week that is when we could see the slight chance for a few scattered showers to return to Acadiana.
