A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect across Acadiana until 9:00 am as visibility has dropped down to a quarter of a mile in some areas.
This fog will lay in thick through the middle of the morning before it will slowly start to ease up, revealing another fairly gray day.
As has been the case over the last several days a stalled front will stick around for another day and in doing so will keep the door open for showers to come swinging through Acadiana.
Showers and storms won’t arrive until the evening and will come swinging in from the west so keep an eye on the radar as you get closer to your drive home from work.
Temperatures will stay steady and settle in the low 70s by the afternoon with plenty of moisture hanging around the atmosphere making things muggy.
The front stick around for another few days keeping Acadiana feeling very spring like with highs pushing 80 by Saturday afternoon.
Showers won’t be quite as numerous at the end of the week and we may even get a few breaks in the cloud cover.
Sunday will represent a major pattern flip with a cold front pushing across the area providing not only a round of showers and storms but bitterly cold temperatures.
There’s been enough consistency the last few days that it’s safe to say while the clouds will be significantly thinner over Mardi Gras the winds will be kicked up and temperatures outside will be cold.
