Expect a mild and damp night ahead as lows only drop into the mid-upper 60s courtesy of southerly winds and cloud cover.

We'll certainly have a tropical "feel" across Acadiana tonight.

Mostly cloudy, mild and windy for Acadiana's Thursday with showers and thunderstorms becoming likely during the midday hours as a cold front moves in.

The pattern will turn milder and a bit more unsettled into next week.
