It may be the start of a new year but the forecast looks basically the same as it did toward the end of last week and the weekend.
A slight break in the clouds will bring some welcomed sunshine to northern parts of Acadiana during the first half of the day on Tuesday.
This break will be short lived, however, as clouds gathering along the coast will than push northward returning overcast skies to south Louisiana.
Despite the cloudy skies it won’t produce much in the way of rainfall Tuesday, with only a few light drizzly showers scattered later in the day.
Highs will sit in the low 60s with little change in temperatures through the day as the morning lows will hover in the low to mid 50s.
As the week continues the weather looks to progressively get worse with heavy showers starting Wednesday evening and lasting through the day Thursday.
This could be another several inches of rain across south Louisiana which could lead to some road flooding, but a major widespread flood event is not expected.
The sun should return on Friday and that will finally be the first substantial, long lasting sunshine we’ve had for some time now.
