The showers have been rolling across Acadiana and the temperatures have been dropping, making for a sloppy and chilly commute to work Thursday.

This round of rain is part of the long-talked-about front that will be ushering in the coldest temperatures we've seen so far this season.

Showers will continue through the first half of the day before easing up by mid-morning, clouds will take a little longer to clear out though with the sunshine finally pushing through mid-afternoon.

Winds will be picking up through the day and eventually settle around a 15-20 mph out of the north, which will combine with 55 degree highs to bring us a consistent wind chill in the 40s.

While it will be dry for the trick or treaters it will still be windy and cold, so make sure the costumes are layered up before heading out in the search of candy.

This is going to set the table for the weekend which is shaping up to be cold and dry, and even with an over abundance of sunshine it'll remain chilly for the next several days.
