Weather gets tricky for the weekend

Posted: Updated:

A cold start to your midweek but the warm up will be fast and drastic enough that you'll have to watch for whiplash as temperatures reach into the mid 60s by the time lunch rolls around. 

It's one last day of sunshine before the skies will start to be invaded with clouds which will set up shop for the weekend, with the early cirrus arrivals moving in by Wednesday afternoon. 

The cirrus will eventually change over to a thicker, darker layer of cloud cover, which, once in place will stick around through the rest of the work week and the majority of the weekend. 

Showers will take a little longer to get going with a few isolated showers possible on Thursday afternoon but gradually increasing for a Friday morning spent dodging scattered showers. 

The bigger question marks arrive on the weekend when a front will be moving through the area and bringing more showers and storms across Acadiana at some point. 

As of Wednesday the worst of the weather will move through Saturday late night and into Sunday morning, with a few strong storms possible by Sunday, leading up to this event though will be scattered showers and cloudy skies through the day Friday and Saturday. 

There's a lot going on with Mardi Gras this weekend which makes a poorly forecast like this one tricky but just stay tuned and monitor how timing changes from shift to shift and eventually a pattern will emerge that will help you with your weekend plans.
