Chilly and rather gloomy conditions will take hold across Acadiana following Thursday evening's cool front with plenty of clouds and occasional patchy light rain, drizzle and or mist continuing overnight and then a few periods patchy light rain into Friday afternoon.

Temperatures will drop into the upper 40s to lower 50s Friday morning and stay there throughout the day.

On top of the cloudy and cool conditions, a stiff north wind will make it feel even colder into Friday night.

Clouds will clear out Friday night with temperatures dropping into the mid-upper 30s Saturday morning...patchy frost will be possible, especially in the northern Acadiana parishes.

The weekend looks quite nice with mostly sunny skies Saturday accompanied by highs reaching the low to mid 60s, and fair to partly cloudy skies accompanied by milder conditions Sunday with highs reaching the lower 70s.

Mostly cloudy skies with temperatures in the mid-70s are anticipated Monday ahead of a sharp, Canadian cold front, that will likely bring Acadiana's first chances at light freezes come Wednesday and possibly Thursday morning.

Rain is expected along and behind the front Monday night with showers ending Tuesday morning...and while atmospheric profiles and accompanying surface temperatures stay above the freezing mark.

Temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday will likely top out only in the 40s while readings at night dropping into the mid-upper 30s into Tuesday morning, the upper 20s Wednesday morning, and near the freezing mark again, perhaps for Thursday morning.

We won't have pipe-busting cold temperatures, but certainly a "tender-vegetation-killing-freeze" will be possible, especially Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

No wintry precipitation is expected to accompany the coldest air for Acadiana, but some spotty non-accumulating sleet might be possible as close as Mississippi come Tuesday morning, per the European Model.
