Get ready for our coldest night of the week as lows will dip into the mid to upper 30s under mostly clear skies.
We will start off with a fair amount of sunshine on Thursday but quickly high clouds will be moving over the region.
Depending on how fast the clouds move in and block out the sun will determine how high the temperatures climb during the afternoon.
If sunshine lingers through lunchtime highs could push the lower 60s but if the clouds move in sooner and are thick enough highs could hold in the mid to upper 50s.
Thursday evening into Friday morning there is a slight chance for a few isolated showers as a low pressure system moves out of the Gulf and over land near Mississippi and Alabama.
New Orleans will have a better chance to see scattered showers Thursday night into Friday morning from this system.
Friday afternoon we will have more clouds than sun but temperatures will be a tad warmer topping out in the mid to upper 60s.
The weekend looks amazing with mostly sunny skies and highs in the low to mid 70s.
Monday will be on the mild side with temperatures in the mid 70s but a strong cold front will be swinging through the region during the afternoon producing scattered showers and maybe a rumble of thunder.
Showers should wrap up during the evening as the front exits to our east.
Behind this front another shoot of winter air moves into Acadiana as highs Tuesday and Wednesday will only be in the low to mid 50s and overnight lows will drop into the low to mid 30s. Brrr!
