Breezy Monday then turning cooler Tuesday

Posted at 4:19 PM, Dec 02, 2018

After another warm day in Acadiana temperatures will be dropping fast once the sun goes down and with the help of a dry cool front sliding through Acadiana lows will bottom out in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

Here is a look at the latest hour-by-hour temperatures.

 

Monday will still be a nice, mild day with highs in the mid to upper 60s but winds will be picking up out of the north at 10-15 mph, it will feel about 10-18° cooler than this weekend.

Latest look at projected winds for the next couple days.

 

The chilly air starts to arrive Monday nights as lows Tuesday morning will dip down into the upper 30s and lower 40s.

Wednesday morning will be the coldest of the week with lows in the low to mid 30s creating widespread frost on the cars, so you will need to get the heavier coats and jackets out again.

And during the day it is going to remain on the cooler side with highs only in the mid to upper 50s Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon.

Thursday high pressure scoots off to the east flipping winds back out of the south warming temperatures into the mid 60s and pushing some clouds back over the region.

Friday will start off dry but during the afternoon a few isolated showers will start to push into western Acadiana before widespread scattered showers and a few thunderstorms move in during the evening.

Showers start to return Friday afternoon

Then the main low pressure system will slide into Acadiana early Saturday morning producing heavy showers and storms.

Heavy showers and storms likely Saturday morning with possibility for severe weather.

We will have to keep any eye on this system as we could have the possibility for a couple strong to severe storms.

Also, this system looks to produce about 2-4 inches of rain so flash flooding might be an issue for areas that see multiple heavy downpours.

European model projected rainfall Friday night into Saturday morning.

The low should push off to the east Saturday afternoon and behind this system we will see another round of breezy and cold conditions Saturday evening into Sunday & Monday.
