The weather is getting unsettled along the Gulf Coast, although luckily for Louisiana it seems we are just on the outside of the most impactful weather.

Friday is the transition day when the first round of clouds start to push into the area, making the skies overcast by the time the evening commute rolls around.

The lack of afternoon sun will keep the highs running in the upper 50s, but we won't bottom out as much with our lows which should stay in the low to mid 40s.

Showers will slowly start to pick up along the Gulf Coast Friday night/early Saturday morning with Acadiana starting to get some light scattered showers before dawn.

St. Mary Parish and southern Iberia Parish will see slow steady rain through the entire day Saturday, but the rest of Acadiana will likely only see scattered showers.

Rain totals through the majority of Acadiana will be in the quarter inch range while St. Mary Parish could be looking at an inch or two over the course of the weekend.

Regardless of the showers it will be a cool and cloudy weekend, although the clouds should clear out by the time the holiday week comes along.

Christmas is looking pleasant with highs in the low 70s and plenty of sunshine.
