An upper level disturbance will cruise eastward today. Scattered rains have been lingering across Acadiana during the early morning hours, especially over the southern sections. A few pockets of moderate rain have been noted, with just a few rumbles of thunder. These rains aren’t expected to last long, and skies will eventually clear during the morning.

Upper Disturbance Moving East
Becoming Sunny This Afternoon

Once we see some sunshine, we can expect temperatures to hold in the mid 60s for highs. Winds will be light out of the northeast. Overnight, expect clear skies with comfortably cool conditions. Lows will run in the upper 40s. For Black Friday, we’ll start out calm and generally fair. Clouds will gradually move in during the late morning hours with scattered showers developing later in the afternoon.  Expect warmer temperatures, as highs will flirt with 70 degrees.

Warm This Weekend

Looking ahead toward the remainder of the holiday weekend, clouds and sun will be in the forecast for Saturday and Sunday with just a few isolated showers and highs in the mid to upper 70s. Another cold front will chill us again for most of next week with highs back in the 50s and 60s.
