Scattered showers and storms this weekend; turning much cooler next week

Posted at 6:38 PM, Nov 27, 2020

Welcome to the weekend, Acadiana!

It was a gloomy Friday with all of us across Acadiana picking up a pretty good soaking through the course of the day.

Most areas picked up around 1-3 inches of rainfall with some isolated spots picking up close to 4 inches.

Scattered showers and storms will continue through the evening as a frontal boundary pushes to the southeast.

Expected moderate to heavy rainfall with some gusty winds possible at times.

We should start to get a break in the action later on tonight as the boundary finally pushes offshore.

That will give way to some patchy fog development late Friday and into early Saturday as low temperatures drop back into the lower 60s.

Cloudy skies can be expected for your Saturday with off and on shower activity possible through the day.

The scattered showers will not be as intense as they were on Friday nor will it necessarily be raining all day long, but rain chances will remain healthy at around 60%.

A surface low pressure feature will move right through Acadiana on Saturday night and into Sunday morning which will lead to numerous scattered showers and storms.

Some of these storms that push through could be on the stronger side with locally heavy rainfall possible.

That same feature will quickly move out of the area on Sunday afternoon with drier and much cooler air filtering in behind it.

We will turn much colder and blustery for Monday with plenty of sunshine expected
