Clouds started streaming into Acadiana early Tuesday morning and will act as a harbinger of things to come this week.

Tuesday we’ll get a steady increase in cloud cover as winds pick up and push in a warm front Tuesday afternoon.

The front will spark some passing showers so be on the lookout for some light, scattered activity through the day while temperatures sit in the low 70s.

Winds will kick up Tuesday afternoon as well, eventually blowing out of the south at 10-15 mph and gusting up to 20-25 mph at times.

Showers will increase through the night as a cold front moves across the state on Wednesday which will not make for a very pleasant weather day.

While the rains will continue through the day rain totals likely won’t get much higher than about a half inch on average area-wide.

As the rain fall so will the temperatures as the day on Wednesday will get progressively get colder, although never cold enough to get the rain to switch from liquid precipitation.

This will eventually wrap up with subfreezing temperatures by Thursday morning but at least the skies will be clear.
