Wet New Year’s Eve brings in cloudy New Year’s Day

Posted at 7:49 AM, Dec 31, 2018

It’s been a gloomy couple of days across Acadiana, and as we get ready to ring in a new year the weather will continue to be damp and dreary.

A front will be pushing through during the first half of the day on Monday bringing widespread showers from west to east through lunch time.

Temperatures are more or less already sitting at their highs for the day and will slowly drop through the day, eventually landing in the upper 40s by New Year’s morning.

While it’ll certainly be wet outside it doesn’t look like rain totals will be overly impressive so not expecting flooding, however, the roads will still be slick.

If you’re going out to celebrate the new year Monday night the weather won’t be too bad outside of being cool and damp.

The showers will clear from west to east, but the clouds will stick around even when the rainfall is gone making it a grey start to 2019.

There’s not a lot of sunshine coming up over the next few days with mostly cloudy skies through the majority of the work week, and the next round of showers and thunderstorms on Thursday.
