Another cold night across the area as lows drop back into the lower and mid-30s.

Clouds will start to be on the increase after midnight which will help to limit the frost potential.

Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected throughout the day on Sunday.

Some limited peeks of sunshine will be possible around the late morning-early afternoon time frame before clouds really start to dominate heading into the rest of the afternoon.

It will be chilly once again as highs struggle to reach 50 degrees.

Most of the day will remain dry, but a few spotty showers will be possible late in the afternoon, increasing in coverage from west to east.

Best rain chances arrive tomorrow evening/night as a surface feature is going to be approaching from the Gulf.

Now the main upper-level disturbance that will be approaching from the west will start to lift northward as it nears the eastern Texas/northern LA area and as a result, it will take the coldest of the air with it.

So, although we will have plenty of overrunning moisture in place going into tomorrow night, we won't have temperatures quite cold enough to support widespread winter precipitation.

Mainly just a cold rain is expected across Acadiana through the overnight period, but we may see a few sleet pellets/snow flurries mixed in, particularly along and north of highway 190.

But again, with the ground temperatures being too warm, little to no accumulation is anticipated.

Some of this activity lingers into early Monday morning, but the majority of the day will be dry, cloudy, breezy and cold.

In fact, afternoon highs will only be in the mid-40s...

And with a stout northerly wind in place (blowing in from areas that will likely have snow on the ground), wind chills will likely remain in the 30s all day... BRRR!

A light freeze will be possible going into Tuesday morning as low temperatures drop to or below freezing.

Chilly temperatures stick with us through mid-week before a gradual warm-up takes place for the latter half of the week.

Have a great rest of the weekend!
