The weather will be nothing short of fantastic for Acadiana this weekend, whether you have outdoor plans and/or doing yard work, or setting up the Christmas displays!

Look for temperatures overnight to drop generally into the mid 50s for Saturday morning.

And like Friday morning, there will be the risk of a few areas of patchy fog by daybreak.

Lots of sunshine will stay in the forecast Saturday and Sunday with highs continuing in the mild upper 70s.

Our next cool front is expected to arrive with little or no fanfare, nor any significant rain chances Sunday night.

Sunny skies and slightly cooler temperatures are anticipated behind the front Monday with highs closer to the low-mid 70s.

The weather pattern will begin to get more dynamic Tuesday with a breezy day ahead of a frontal system that should bring scattered showers and some thunderstorms to the area late Tuesday night ending early Wednesday.

There could be a few robust thunderstorms with next week's system, but it is unclear as to whether the atmosphere will become unstable enough to support a low-end threat of any severe storms.

Skies should clear again by Wednesday afternoon with cooler temperatures to follow Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

Thanksgiving continues to look dry with sunny skies early giving way to high clouds later in the day.

The longer-range models are varying by at least 10° for high temperatures for Thanksgiving, anywhere from the low to mid-60s to the mid-70s, so for now we are splitting the difference and going with 70°.

See the KATC 10 Day Forecast for the latest.

Beyond Thanksgiving the models seem to be converging more into the European "camp" with another good chance of showers and thunderstorms (and perhaps a better chance of a few severe storms and a healthier soaking) Friday night into the following Saturday.

Sharply cooler conditions could follow next weekend's system but not chilly enough to approach frosty/freezing conditions at this point...but that certainly could change or be a system or two away into the first week or two of December.
