In the wake of powerful Hurricane Michael making landfall in the Northeastern Gulf of Mexico and on the Florida Panhandle Wednesday, drier, cooler and some very pleasant weather is on the way to Acadiana for the rest of the week, and most of the weekend too!
Michael’s only effects upon Louisiana have been tides that were running near 2.5 feet above normal through Wednesday morning, but as of the afternoon levels were starting to slowly decrease..
And with northerly winds through the next couple of days, and with Michael inland, those tides will decrease to 1-2 feet Wednesday night and near 1 foot or less Thursday.
Look for mostly sunny skies Thursday with a morning start in the lower 60s and an afternoon finish in the upper 70s to lower 80s.
It will be even cooler Thursday night into Friday morning with readings dropping into the fall-like mid-50s.
The Weather pattern looks to stay pleasant well into the weekend, with temperatures moderating for Sunday, along with some more clouds and a slight chance of a passing shower by late Sunday afternoon.
Clouds and more shower activity could return to the area for early next week.
