In the wake of Sunday's cold front skies will gradually clear with cooler air filtering into the region.

Thus, even with wall to wall sunshine on Monday highs will struggle to top out in the lower 60s.

Tuesday morning will be the coldest period of the week with lows in the mid to upper 30s.

New Years Eve looks to be another nice but cool day with mostly sunny skies and highs near 60.

Clouds start to push into Acadiana Tuesday night as we ring in the new year with temperatures at midnight hovering in the upper 40s.

New Years Day will be quite gloomy with lots of clouds and a few showers moving onshore late in the day.

Thursday a low pressure system will slide out of the Gulf and over South Louisiana producing widespread showers and a few storms.

The rains will last just about all day on Thursday with a few light showers lingering into Friday morning.

In total most of South Louisiana will get a decent soaking from this system as rainfall amounts will be between 2-4 inches.

However, I do not expect any real flooding from this system as it will fall over an extended period of time and we are actually on the dry side and could use a good soaking.

I know the crawfish farmers are looking forward to this heavy rain to provide fresh clean water to the ponds.

Then once this system clears Acadiana Friday afternoon high pressure will build over the southeast creating a sunny and nice weekend with highs in the mid 60s.
