After a beautiful day with temperatures in the mid 60s it will get chilly tonight as temperatures will quickly fall into the upper 40s by 10 pm before bottoming out in the upper 30s and lower 40s.

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


Also, with the ground still really wet and temperatures dropping close to the dew points later on tonight patchy to dense fog will begin to develop across Acadiana.

Once the fog mixes out Sunday morning it looks to be another nice Spring-like day with highs in the upper 60s to near 70.

Now there is the chance for some high to mid level clouds to slide over the region during the afternoon.

If these clouds move in faster than expect or are thick enough to block out some of the sun highs could only top out in the mid 60s.

Clouds definitely return Monday but with a southerly flow it will stay warm with highs in the low 70s.

Tuesday a couple weak cold fronts will try to work down through Acadiana.

The first front looks to be a dry front but will thicken the clouds.

It is the second front that could squeeze out a few isolated showers Tuesday afternoon/evening.

Behind this second front cooler air will return to Acadiana as highs Wednesday through Friday will only be in the mid to upper 50s with lows in the upper 30 to lower 40s.

But thankfully we should not see any significant rain for about a week finally allowing most of the region to dry out after a couple really wet weeks.

The next best chance for rain looks to be later Friday into Saturday as a Gulf low will  slide up the east coast of Texas and move towards the Louisiana coast.

Gulf low projected to bring showers back to Acadiana Saturday.
