It was another beautiful day with lots of sunshine but as we move into the evening some high clouds will start to move over the region.

These clouds will help to prevent temperatures from dropping as much compared to the last couple nights as low will hold near 50°.

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


Also, tonight we will have another round of patchy to dense fog developing dropping visibilities below one mile by Monday morning.

Another night of patchy to dense fog in Acadiana

Once the fog mixes out we should have a fair amount of sunshine during the first half of the day but by the afternoon clouds will start to slide over Acadiana in advance of an approaching cold front.

Even with the increasing clouds during the afternoon it will be another warm day with highs in the lower 70s.

Tuesday morning a weak cool front will try to work through Acadiana and could squeeze out a light stray drizzle.

A second, stronger cold front will then swing down during the afternoon which could also produce a few stray showers but if we get any rain it will only be enough to maybe get the ground wet.

Behind this front cooler, more winter like air will slide down into Acadiana.

Even with skies turning sunny again Wednesday highs will struggle to reach the lower 60s and with a stiff northerly breeze it will feel quite cool throughout the day.

The coldest temperatures are forecasted to be Thursday morning when lows will bottom out in the mid to upper 30s.

Thursday afternoon will be another nice but cool day with highs below average in the mid 50s.

Friday clouds start to thicken as our next weathermaker begins to move into Texas.

A few isolated showers could move into Acadiana Friday afternoon/evening but widespread scattered showers will arrive Saturday as a Gulf Low slides just to the south of the Louisiana coast.

Saturday could be an all day rain event but for the most part it will just be light to moderate showers.

Gulf low to bring widespread showers all day Saturday

Rain should come to an end late Saturday itno early Sunday with skies clearing Sunday afternoon but temperatures stay on the cooler side in the mid to upper 50s for highs.
