This evening showers will push off to the east and skies will gradually clear setting up a frigid night will lows near freezing and wind chills dropping into the 20s.

If the winds die down enough through the overnight hours patchy frost will develop meaning sensitive plants need to be covered and pets should be brought inside but pipes will be fine.

After the chilly start temperatures will warm up nicely as highs climb into the mid 50s thanks to a full day of sunshine and light winds.

Thursday night/Friday morning will be another cold night with lows in the mid 30s, so keep the plants covered as we could have the possibility for another light frost.

Early Friday morning we will have weak cold front swing down through the region sending slightly cooler air over Acadiana so afternoon highs will be a few degrees cooler in the lower 50s.

With this cooler air in place and clear skies patchy frost will be likely again Saturday morning with lows in the lower 30s.

Saturday afternoon high pressure scoots off to the east flipping winds back out of the south pushing highs back to near 60 with a mix of sun and high clouds.

Sunday will be very similar to Saturday with temperatures in the lower 60s but we could have a bit more clouds around, especially during the morning hours.

The warmest day over the next 10 days will be Monday as highs will top out in the mid to upper 60s.

Then Tuesday morning our next strong cold front arrives producing scattered light showers with temperatures falling behind the front throughout the day dropping into the 40s with wind chills in the 30s, very similar to what we saw today(Wednesday).

We could see our coldest temperatures next Wednesday morning with lows dropping into the mid to upper 20s, which could cause pipes to freeze and burst.
