A weak cold front is located just to our west and will slowly track across Acadiana on Monday producing hit or miss showers on the backside during the afternoon.

Here is a look at the latest Futurecast to time out the showers on Monday.


These showers will be on the light side, although a rumble of thunder can not be ruled out near the coast, as most areas will only pick up about a tenth to a quarter of an inch of rain.

The front will clear the region and push out into the Gulf on Tuesday ushering in sunny skies but cooler and slightly breezy conditions as highs will fall into the lower 60s.

Wednesday morning will be chilly with lows in the lower 40s before sunshine warms temperatures into the mid 60s.

Wednesday afternoon clouds will build over Acadiana in advance of our next system which will be a Gulf low.

The latest European model run has the low staying further to the south meaning maybe the heaviest rains stay out over the waters but we will still have a good chance for scattered showers and maybe a thunderstorm during the early morning hours of Thanksgiving.

As this low slides to the east clouds could linger over Acadiana throughout Thanksgiving holding temperatures on the cooler side in the low 60s.

For those going shopping for the early Black Friday deals the forecast looks pretty good with dry conditions and temperatures in the low to mid 50s.

Friday afternoon/evening our next front is projected to swing through Acadiana producing another round of scattered showers and storms.

Good news is the front looks to push off to the east by Saturday morning setting up another fantastic weekend with partly cloudy skies and highs in the lower 70s both days.
