Cooler temperatures coming to Acadiana

Posted at 3:52 PM, Mar 31, 2020

It's bee a pretty warm stretch over the last few weeks, temperatures have been coming in well above average, but for a little bit we'll settle back down with a couple of cool nights and afternoons.

The front that moved through late Monday night/early Tuesday morning is well passed the area and the cooler, drier air has been filtering in across the region.

As skies have been able to clear we'll see temperatures drop through the night and lows will eventually bottom out in the upper 40s and low 50s by early Wednesday morning.

A cooler start to the morning will give way to a very pleasant afternoon on Wednesday with an abundance of sunshine and temperatures sitting in the mid 70s through the warmer parts of the day.

This cool, crisp weather will be with us through the middle of the week but by Friday a shift in the winds will bring more of that warm, muggy Gulf air back into Acadiana.

Temperatures will warm back up into the 80s and humidity will inch up along with the temperature as we get into the weekend.

Rain chances will be creeping back into the forecast as well with a small disturbance expected to graze the area on Friday night and Saturday sparking some showers and thunderstorms.

These small disturbances can be pretty tricky to nail down and as of writing this (Tuesday afternoon) the position of it along the coast could easily wobble taking the showers offshore.

So keep tuned to the forecast and pay attention to how those days trend which will go along way in speaking of the confidence of the forecast.
