With some passing clouds beginning to stream over Acadiana tonight it will not be as cold as lows will hold in the mid 40s.

After times of morning sunshine high clouds will increase throughout the region on Sunday but with winds flipping out of the south temperatures will still climb a few degrees into the mid 60s.

Monday will start off dry and mild with lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

During the afternoon a line of showers and a few storms will sweep across Acadiana ahead of our next cool front.

The good news is the latest timing for the rain is between 2-6PM so hopefully the showers will be done before the Queen's parade Monday evening.

Mardi Gras still looks nice with morning clouds giving way to afternoon sunshine and temperatures in the mid to upper 60s.

Late Tuesday night a stronger cold front swings through the area maybe producing a few light showers but more importantly will provide another round of winter weather to Acadiana.

Temperatures on Wednesday will hold in the low to mid 50s all day with a steady breeze out of the North at 10-20 mph making it feel like the 40s.

Lows Thursday morning will dip down into the low to mid 30s, meaning frost is a possibility, so sensitive plants will need to be covered again.

Even with a full day of sunshine Thursday afternoon it will still be quite cold with highs in the low 50s.

We will have the possibility for a light freeze/heavy frost Friday morning as lows fall into the lower 30s for all of Acadiana so the plants will need to stay protected.

We do gradually start to warm up Friday afternoon as highs climb into the lower 60s thanks to our winds begin to flip back out of the Southeast.

As for next weekend the extended dry and sun weather looks to continue with temperatures back to near normal in the mid 60s.
