It's going to be a breezy and milder weekend for Acadiana in spite of a cool front sweeping through the area Saturday night into Sunday morning.
Look for clouds to increase overnight into Saturday morning with temperatures leveling off in the mid-upper 40s around midnight but rising into the lower 50s by daybreak courtesy of the cloud cover and southeasterly winds kicking in.
Saturday will be predominantly mostly cloudy, breezy and milder with temperatures topping out in the lower 70s.
A few intervals of sunshine however, will be possibly during the midday hours to help make it a more cheerful day.
Gusty southerly winds will kick in shortly after 10 am Saturday with winds approaching 15-25 mph along with gusts near 30 mph during the afternoon hours.
A frontal system will work its way through Acadiana toward Sunday morning generating scattered light showers, primarily during the predawn hours Sunday (roughly between 3-6 am give or take an hour or two).
No severe weather is expected.
And after a few early morning clouds, mostly sunny skies will follow for Acadiana into Sunday afternoon accompanied by gusty northwesterly winds.
Temperatures will start out in the mid-60s Sunday and essentially stay there most of the day as cooler air will lag behind the front into Sunday afternoon.
A winter chill will return Sunday night with lows by Monday morning challenging the upper 30s to lower 40s...wind chill likely, but not included!
The weather pattern looks fair, cool and dry early next week with more unsettled weather and the chance of showers later in the week.
