Drying out with a steady north breeze Sunday

Posted: Updated:

Finally, most of the rain has pushed off to the east with the last few showering tapering off this evening over southeastern Acadiana.

Saturday's rain brought 2-3 inches for most of Acadiana with some spots getting as much as 4-7 inches causing some streets to flood.

Later this evening with the ground soaked areas of patchy to dense fog/mist will develop beginning around 10pm and lasting through the night.

Sunday clouds will linger for most of the day holding temperatures in the lower 60s before a weak cool front gradually sweeps across the region during the afternoon.

Behind the front we could see a few peeks of sunshine but the front will mainly cause winds to pick up during the afternoon out of the north at 10-15 mph, which should help to dry out the area.

With skies clearing late Sunday into Monday morning temperatures will cool off quickly dropping into the upper 30s to the north and lower 40s along the interstate and south.

After the chilly start on Monday bright sunny skies will warm highs into the low to mid 60s.

Tuesday morning will be chilly one with everyone dropping into the low to mid 30s.

Areas of patchy frost will be possible in the rural areas so sensitive vegetation will need to be protected.

Tuesday afternoon will be the coldest of the week as highs will not get out of the mid 50s thanks to a northerly breeze pulling down some cooler air.

Lows Wednesday morning will again bottom out in the low to mid 30s but during the afternoon winds will turn out of the south pushing clouds and warmer air off the Gulf back over Acadiana as highs will climb into the mid 60s.

By Thursday and Friday the weather becomes unsettled again as our next cold front heads towards the region producing a decent chance for scattered showers(40%) late Thursday into Friday morning.

Rain chances will continue for the weekend as well as the models suggest the cold front stalling out and combining with a Gulf low to produce scattered showers late Saturday into Sunday.
