A quiet forecast continues through the end of the week and our brief cold snap will slowly be coming to an end with a return of seasonal temperatures.

After another round of freezing temperatures early Wednesday morning we will slowly warm up into the upper 50s by the afternoon.

The winds have relaxed significantly from earlier on in the work week so the wind chill won’t be as drastic as it was for Mardi Gras.

Plenty of sunshine will be with us through the middle of the week but with some high clouds streaming in across the area.

Those clouds will then gather and thicken up overnight Wednesday meaning mostly cloudy conditions will be back for the rest of the week.

Winds will shift later in the week becoming southerly and as a result bringing us warmer but more moisture rich air in from the Gulf of Mexico.

This comes ahead of our next storm system which is going to move through Acadiana Saturday afternoon sparking showers and thunderstorms.

We need to keep an eye on the forecast the next few days as the system is looking robust so severe weather is not off the table.

There’s a few days to go before then so we have time to get that forecast nailed down just make sure that you stay tuned.
