Dense fog will be the story tonight as it should start developing later on this evening before really thickening up by daybreak with visibility dropping below a half mile.

Thanks to the fog and low clouds temperatures should stay on the mild side as lows will only dip into the upper 50s.

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


Tuesday morning a weak cool front will also be sliding down over Acadiana which could squeeze out a misty drizzle for a few communities but most stay dry.

Once the fog mixes out it will be another warm day with highs in the lower 70s.

A second, stronger cold front will then sweep through Acadiana during the afternoon clearing out the clouds allowing for a few peeks of sun, settling up some beautiful sunsets.

Behind this front cooler, more winter-like air will be moving into Acadiana for Wednesday as highs will struggle to reach the upper 50s even with mostly sunny skies.
