Clouds have already begun to move over Acadiana which will set up a mild night as temperatures will only bottom out in the upper 50s.

As we still lots of low level moisture there will be the chance for areas of patchy fog tonight but it will be nothing like the heavy dense fog we saw last night.

Also tonight a warm front will be sliding north across the region which could produce a stray showers during the overnight hours.

As this warm front continues to lift to the north rain chances will increase to about 40% during the morning but then warmer air will slide over the region as highs climb into the mid to upper 70s.

Then during the afternoon a cold front will swing through Acadiana helping to spark off another chance for a few isolated showers.

Here is a look at the latest Predictive Radar showing rain chances for Sunday.


Once this front pushes off to the east our winds will flip out of the NW and pick up to 10-18 mph.

Now the cool air will leg behind the front so we will not see the chilly temperatures til Monday with lows in the mid 40s and highs struggling to reach the mid 50s.

And it will feel even cooler on Monday as winds will remain breezy out of the NW at 10-18 mph causing wind chills to be in the 40s most of the day.

Tuesday morning lows will dip into the low to mid 30s causing a good chance for widespread frost for all of Acadiana.

During the afternoon it will feel better with lots of sunshine and winds dying down but temperatures will still hold in the 50s.

After another chilly start Wednesday morning with lows in the mid to upper 30s we will start to warm up with highs in the low to mid 60s.

For the second half of the work week there are some questions in the forecast as a couple models are showing a fast moving shortwave pushing into the area which could produce some isolated showers Thursday and Friday but rain chances will only be about 20% both days.

Here is a look at the latest longe range European Model.


Although there are questions about rain chances the models do agree on temperatures warming into the low to mid 70s.

Saturday is when our next cold front will swing through the region producing the best chance for widespread showers and a few thunderstorms.

It is still a little early to tell just how strong or heavy these showers/storms will be but we will definitely be keeping a close eye on this system.
