The up and down forecast will continue on Tuesday as we trade in the clouds and showers for sunshine, even if it takes a little to clear out.

As we go through the day clouds will slowly slide southward with clearing expected to go from the northwest to the southeast, meaning the coastal parishes may not see sunshine until after lunch.

Even with more sunshine expected across Acadiana Tuesday temperatures will still be running a little cooler than they were to start the week.

Highs will only crawl into the low 60s in the afternoon with a chilly breeze coming in from the north around 8-12 mph making it feel slightly cooler.

Due to the clear skies expected Tuesday night another cold night is expected with lows dropping to around 40, with some areas north of I-10 likely seeing the upper 30s.

All of Acadiana should stay above freezing, however, so plants will be alright as we should stay just out of frost range this week.

As mentioned above it’s an up and down week when it comes to the weather and clouds will start to build back on Wednesday.

A disturbance will just brush to our south Wednesday night with most of the showers staying in the Gulf of Mexico, but we’re close enough that south Acadiana may see some rainfall.

Regardless it’ll be clearing up by Thanksgiving with a quiet holiday expected, followed by showers again on Friday.
