After a beautiful day to end out the work week we will have one more chilly night across Acadiana as lows will drop down to the lower 40s by Saturday morning.

Here is a look at hour-by-hour temperatures this evening.


Once the sun comes up Saturday temperatures will warm up quickly and top out near 70, which is just about normal for mid November.

Thus, it will be a fantastic day to get outside and do just about anything including going to the final home game for the Ragin Cajuns at 4PM against South Alabama.

Sunday we will still be under the influence of high pressure so expect more sunshine and warm temperatures in the lower 70s.

Moving into Thanksgiving week our weather turns a little unsettled as a weak front slowly works through Acadiana Monday afternoon/evening producing scattered showers.

A few showers could linger through the overnight into Tuesday morning but for the most part Tuesday looks dry with some peeks of sunshine during the afternoon and slightly cooler temperatures as highs behind the front fall back down into the low to mid 60s.

Wednesday will start off on the dry side before a Gulf low will head our way from the Texas Coast creating scattered showers and even a few thunderstorms during the afternoon/evening into the overnight hours.

Waking up on Thanksgiving a couple light showers could still be around but it looks like we should have a fairly nice day with partly sunny skies by the afternoon and temperatures in the mid 60s, perfect for those family flag football games.
