After a beautiful fall day we are going to see some of our coolest temperatures in nearly 6 months as lows Monday morning will dip into the mid to upper 40s with a few lower 50s along the coast.

Projected lows for Monday morning

We will wake up to a fair amount of sunshine Monday but clouds will be moving off the Gulf and over Acadiana throughout the day holding highs below average in the lower 70s.

Hour to Hour Temperatures 


Tuesday there will be a slight chance for a few isolated showers, especially south of the interstate, otherwise it will be a cool and cloudy day with highs struggling to get out of the 60s.

Our next chance for widespread showers and thunderstorms will be late Wednesday into Thursday morning as a low pressure system will move out of the Gulf and over Acadiana.

Low heading for Acadiana Thursday morning brings chance for heavy rains

This system will have the chance to bring heavy rains to portions of Acadiana so we will have to watch for the possibility of isolated spots experiencing flash flooding again.

At this time it is a little early to show rainfall totals and most areas will only see about 1-2 inches of rain but like we saw last week if showers train over the same area 4-6+ inches for a few isolated spots can not be ruled out.

Thursday afternoon the low will slide off to the east and we should begin to dry out but clouds and cool conditions will linger for the rest of the day.

By Friday we will start to see sunshine return to Acadiana but with a northerly flow wrapping around the low highs will stay on the cool side in the lower 70s.

Next weekend looks fantastic with mostly sunny skies both days and awesome fall temperatures with highs in the mid 70s and lows in the low to mid 50s.
