It was spectacular outside to wrap up the work week across Acadiana, this will be the end of the sunshine for a few days with the return of some clouds over the weekend.
The clouds will be associated with some light showers both Saturday and Sunday but while the rain will be chilly it will stay liquid precipitation with no winter precipitation expected.
Temperatures will be off to a chilly start Saturday morning but the afternoon, even with the lack of sunshine, should be fairly mild with a possibility of some spots hitting 60 degrees in the afternoon.
Showers will remain spotty on Saturday but will likely pick up slightly Sunday both in coverage and intensity as a front starts to move in and interact with the moisture in place.
This sets up a damp and cold New Year's Eve so revelers will need to be bundled up when they head out to usher in 2018.
A serious cold will roll into the area for the first week of the year and will be one of the coldest stretches we've seen in Acadiana for several years, the cold arrives behind the moisture so not expecting snow or ice.
