Showers usher in windy and cold weekend

Posted: Updated:

Change is arriving in the form of a blustery front that will push through Acadiana Thursday evening and while it may be gusty and loud at times no severe weather or flooding is expected with its passage. 

Showers should be clear of the area around midnight with only a few light lingering showers having a harder time in clearing, but despite a few lingering drizzles the cold, windy air will be rushing in replacing Thursday's warm muggy air mass. 

Winds will be strong and gusty by morning coming out of the north around 12-20 mph and gusting at times up to around 30 mph which will keep the wind chill in the 30s and 40s all day long. 

Friday skies will slowly clear out but with little sunshine it'll be a dreary cold day across the region with temperatures falling back below freezing by Saturday morning. 

The weekend will be sunny but temperatures will be frigid despite several nights below freezing there shouldn't be the same issue with the pipes  as it won't be as cold for as long as it was last week. 

Chilly conditions expected to last into next week with another, drier front on the way next week.
