It’s another dreary day across Acadiana as we continue to deal with what has been an extended unsettled pattern.

Showers aren’t going to be a major issue on Thursday, although the morning commute will continue to be foggy and dreary.

While we aren’t looking at much rain on Thursday we will continue to see the clouds stick around with sunshine only possible in patches.

Winds are finally out of the north so cooler conditions expected through the afternoon with the high pushing into the low 70s, a solid 10 degree difference from earlier this week.

This could be the last time temperatures are above 60 for a week with several rounds of cold air moving and keeping temperatures subdued.

Highs on Friday will likely be in the 50s but a persistent strong wind from the north will keep the wind chill in the 40s and sunshine won’t be possible until extremely late in the day.

All of that is the result of a front moving through on Friday morning which will be responsible for a round of heavy showers Friday morning.

They will get going during the commute and last through lunch time with the clouds taking longer to clear out than the rain.

Once the rain ends temperatures will quickly drop leading into a chilly, windy, and cloudy weekend.
