Cloud/warm pre-Spring pattern continues

Posted at 5:35 PM, Mar 14, 2020

Although there will be a weakening frontal boundary dropping southward across the state Sunday, Acadiana's weather will remain spring-like with just a touch cooler temperatures briefly moving in Sunday night into early Monday morning.

Look for another round of clouds and eventually fog developing overnight through Sunday morning with low temperatures in the mid-60s.

After morning fog and overcast skies early Sunday, look for mostly to occasionally partly cloudy skies into Sunday afternoon.

High temperatures Sunday will once again range in the upper 70s to lower 80s with a few intervals of afternoon sun.

It could be slightly cooler Sunday night into Monday morning with lows dropping closer to the lower 60s...and perhaps suppressing the fog threat closer to the coast or offshore.

The same fizzling front will advance back northward into Monday with mostly cloudy skies and warm afternoon temperatures returning.

Rain chances Sunday into Monday will be near 10%, but should increase slightly to the 20-30% range Tuesday and perhaps into Wednesday as a little more upper level energy passes through the area aloft via the sub-tropical jet stream.

The rest of the week should stay in a relatively benign and warm period with mostly cloudy skies, some overnight fog and rain chances on any given day near 20% or less.

A more significant front should approach the area next weekend yielding a better chance of showers and some thunderstorms, and perhaps briefly cooler temperatures.

However, any cooling effects from this weekend's front will likely be rather short-lived.
