This evening we will see some patchy to dense fog developing over Acadiana from about 8 PM til midnight reducing visibility to a mile or less.
But thanks to a cool front sliding down over the region this evening that will push the fog back out into the Gulf.
Now as this front swings into the area a few showers will be possible along and behind the front lasting through the overnight hours.
Wednesday looks to be another dreary day with lots of clouds and cooler as temperatures will feel about 15-20 degrees cooler than Tuesday.
A few isolated showers will be possible Wednesday afternoon but rain chances really ramp up Wednesday evening into the first half of Thursday.
And it is going to be a chilly rain on Thursday with temperatures hovering near 50 with a cold breeze out of the north at 10-20 mph making it feel more like the lower 40s.
With the rains Wednesday night into Thursday most of Acadiana will see about a half inch to an inch of rain with higher rain totals staying across northern portions of the Bayou State.
Thursday evening skies will begin to clear allowing temperatures to keep falling as lows Friday morning could dip into the mid to upper 30s.
Sunshine returns on Friday but it is still going to be a cold winter day with highs in the mid 50s.
Saturday morning will be our coldest with lows in the low to mid 30s which could produce a decent frost, so sensitive plants will need to be covered.
If you are heading out to any of the parades on Saturday the forecasts looks good with partly cloudy skies but you will want a jacket as temperatures will be in the upper 50s to near 60.
And for the most part Sunday should be fine for the parades with mostly cloudy skies and highs in the mid 60s.
Beyond Sunday afternoon there are some questions as the long range models show slightly different solutions through Mardi Gras.
Both models show a low pressure and associated cold front swinging through the region sometime Sunday night into Monday producing a couple scattered showers and maybe a thunderstorm.
This should be a fast moving system and we look to dry out in time for the Queen Evangeline parade Monday evening with temperatures in the lower 60s.
Right now most of Mardi Gras looks dry with mostly cloudy skies and highs in the mid 60s.
However, there is the possibility for some scattered showers in the late afternoon/evening as both models show another cold front heading for the region.
Here is a look at both models so you can see how different they are in the Sunday to Tuesday time frame.
