We will get a little break in the storm activity for Thanksgiving before the pattern turns quite unsettle Friday and much of the upcoming weekend.

Temperatures will be heading for the mid and upper 50s across the region overnight and into Thursday morning under partly cloudy skies.

The "cold" front that moved through early on Wednesday will start to run out of steam on Thursday and actually begin to move back northward as a stationary front through the course of the afternoon.

This could help to generate a few spotty showers throughout Thursday afternoon and evening, but otherwise, expect partly to mostly cloudy skies for your Thanksgiving.

High temperatures will be topping out in the mid-70s.

Now as we head into Friday, the boundary will continue moving northward as a warm front.

This will put us in the warm sector with a decent amount of low-level moisture in place, so scattered showers and storms will be a good bet throughout the day on Friday.

Some storms could be on the stronger side.. In fact, most of Acadiana is hatched in for a marginal risk for severe weather (level 1 out of 5) with some hail and damaging winds being our primary concerns.

The pattern will remain active heading into the weekend as an upper-level trough starts to take shape out to our west which will induce surface lower pressure in SE Texas on Saturday.

This surface low feature will gradually move in our direction Saturday night into Sunday giving us a healthy chance to see scattered showers and thunderstorms (We could see a little break in the action on Saturday afternoon).

We could pick up an additional 3-4 inches of rainfall through the course of the weekend.

The same feature will then usher in a cold front sometime on Sunday which will dry us out, but also cool us off a good amount as we head into the first week of December.

We will likely be talking lows mainly in the 30s with afternoon highs in the 50s! Quite the cool down coming!

Y'all have a great Thanksgiving and just make sure to keep up with the weather as we round out the week and head into the weekend.
