A few showers possible everyday through Fat Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

Flash Flood Watch issued for all of Acadiana until 5AM.

Scattered showers will continue for the rest of the evening through about midnight before showers begin to finally push off to the east.

These showers could produce 1-3 inches of rain so watch out for ponding on the roads, especially in the typical poor drainage areas.

A few isolated showers could linger into the morning hours of Sunday before the cold front eventually pushes into through Acadiana during the afternoon.

Behind the front Acadiana will start to dry out but those heading to New Orleans to catch some of the parades there could still see scattered showers for much of the day.


Once the front clears the area cool air will move over Acadiana causing temperatures to fall throughout the day as we will drop into the mid to upper 50s Sunday afternoon.

Temperatures will continue to fall into Monday morning as lows will dip into the mid to upper 40s. 

Lundi Gras looks to remain on the cool side with highs only warming a few degrees into the mid 50s with mostly cloudy skies and a slight chance for a few stray showers.

As for Mardi Gras the forecast is looking fine.

It will be a cool start for the early festivities with temperatures in the low to mid 50s but temperatures should push near 70 by the afternoon.

As for the parades it looks dry as we will have lots of clouds and maybe a 20% chance for a couple showers.

Rain chances look to go up to about 40% for Ash Wednesday/Valentine's Day as our next system heads our way with temperatures in the mid 70s.

Thursday and Friday will feel spring-like with highs in the mid to upper 70s under partly sunny skies.

Moving into next weekend the clouds thicken up again along with a few scattered showers as a southerly flow pushes warm and humid air off the Gulf and over Acadiana.
