Clouds moving in for the weekend

Posted: Updated:

The clouds moved in Thursday morning and will mark the beginning of a tricky, frustrating forecast for Acadiana as we start to close out the weekend and start the work week. 

Once the clouds settle in they will be hard to shake as mostly cloudy skies are expected to remain for the next several days taking us all the way through the weekend. 

Cloudy skies may give way to a few isolated showers on Thursday evening although any shower activity will remain sporadic and light, only picking up in coverage once the sun goes down. 

A wet night will be reasonable to expect on Thursday night/Friday morning but the showers should come to an end before Friday's early morning commute time. 

Even if the showers clear up plenty of clouds will remain across the region with a little sunshine possible in patches later in the day on Friday, and quickly giving way to more clouds by the weekend. 

Meanwhile temperatures will fluctuate dramatically from a warm, muggy 72 degrees on Thursday afternoon to highs not making it into the 60s by Friday afternoon, although our lows will stay pretty consistent. 

All eyes are on the weekend now with Mardi Gras celebrations getting ready to kick off into full swing, but an unsettled forecast means hair pulling for both forecasters and weekend warriors. 

While it's too early to cancel any plans it may not be a bad idea to have a plan ready in case you do encounter rain which will likely be popping up through the weekend, the heaviest of which will arrive likely Saturday night into Sunday morning.
