A few isolated showers will continue later on this evening and through the overnight hours.

Patchy to dense fog moving off the Gulf and over South Louisiana will be an issue again reducing visibility in the morning.

Through the first half of Sunday our winds will start to pick up out of the south at 10-20 mph making for a blustery day.

Then during the afternoon scattered showers and a few storms will swing across Acadiana as a cold front works through Louisiana.

There is a low end threat north of the interstate for an isolated storm to be on the strong to severe side with damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph or a brief spin up tornado possible.

As for rainfall most of Acadiana will only see about a quarter of an inch of rain however, there is a possibility a few spots, especially from DeRidder up to Alexandria, where the heavier showers/storms could set up dropping 1-2 inches of rain.

Behind this front cooler and drier air will slide down into the Southeast as temperatures will fall to near normal conditions for this time of year in the lower 40s at night and the lower 60s during the day on Monday and Tuesday to close out 2019.

Although it will be cool at least we should end the year with mostly sunny skies on Monday and Tuesday.

Clouds slide back over Acadiana to start the year with showers lifting out of the Gulf and over Louisiana late Wednesday and into Thursday as a low pressure rides up the Texas coast towards the Tennessee Valley.

This could finally bring some decent rain to Acaidana between 1-2 inches for just about everyone.

This system should clear the area by Friday afternoon setting up a sunny and cool weekend with highs back in the lower 60s.
