Temperatures will continue to drop this evening with winds stay breezy out of the north at 10-20 mph making it feel down right freezing with wind chills in the low to mid 20s by Sunday morning.
After a freezing start temperatures will slowly warm up during the afternoon as highs will top out near 50 but with winds still breezy out of the north it will only feel like the upper 30s and lower 40s all day.
Thus, for those tailgating for the Saints game you will need to bundle up and stay close to the grill or pot of gumbo to stay warm.
Sunday night the winds should die down but it will still be really cold if you want to watch the total lunar eclipse happening from 9:30pm until midnight with temperatures in the mid 30s.
Monday morning will be another frigid start for those having to work on Martin Luther King day with lows near 32 and wind chills in the upper 20s.
The good news is winds should flip out of the south allowing highs to climb into the upper 50s under mostly sunny skies Monday afternoon.
Clouds and a few isolated showers return Tuesday in advance of our next cold front but it will be warm with temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
The front looks to swing through Acadiana Wednesday morning but on and off showers will continue through the afternoon until the front completely clears the pelican state and pushes off to the east Wednesday night.
Behind this front we will get another round of cool temperatures as highs Thursday and Friday will be in the mid 50s with morning lows in the low to mid 30s.
This round of below average temperatures looks to stick around for several days as we will get a second cold front dropping through the region late Saturday into Sunday which could produce a few showers but mainly provide another shot of cool air to last into the first half of following week..
