Mild with scattered showers Friday; big winter chill this weekend

Posted at 6:29 PM, Mar 10, 2022

Cool, but not quite as chilly tonight.

Upper 40s for northern parishes as the rest of us will be in the low-mid 50s.

Clouds will be building back into the area late tonight and into Friday morning.

A few scattered showers may be out there for the morning commute (30-40%).

And that's pretty much where rain chances remain for most of the day—> on a scattered basis.

Temperatures will look to top out in the low-mid 70s by the afternoon.

Highest rain chances arriving Friday evening as the main upper-level impulse moves in.

Severe weather is not anticipated, although the SPC is maintaining a level 1 out of 5 risk for southeastern portions of Acadiana (gusty winds primary threat).

Wind chills will be in the mid-20s!

We'll be close to freezing Sunday morning, so be sure to protect the plants this weekend!

The good news is that we'll see a decent amount of sunshine this weekend.

Highs struggle to reach the lower 50s Saturday before pushing the lower 60s come Sunday afternoon.

We then resume our spring-like weather pattern into next week as highs return to the 70s.

Next chance of rain arriving late Monday into early Tuesday.
