Merry Christmas Eve!

It was cold and blustery out there today with highs struggling to get out of the 40s; wind chills were mainly in the lower 40s.

The winds will start to settle down a bit overnight tonight, but it will still be breezy at times, especially this evening.

The biggest issue tonight is nailing down the overnight lows.

If winds do not settle down enough, then that would tend to keep our temperatures above the freezing degree mark.

Regardless, a light freeze will be possible for portions of Acadiana (particularly northern parishes) but we are not going to be dealing with a pipe buster.

Frost will be likely by tomorrow morning across all of Acadiana, so you'll want to take care of any tender vegetation you may have and make sure to bring the pets into a warmer space.

Definitely a cold one out there for Santa, but considering he is coming in from the north pole, he should not have too many issues dealing with the cold temperatures, so no need to worry!

After that frosty start, we will see temperatures climbing into the lower and mid-50s by Christmas Day afternoon with plentiful sunshine in place.

We turn a bit milder heading into the weekend as rain chances stay minimal.

Quiet start to next week as highs hover close to 70 degrees before another cold front arrives by Wednesday.

That should setup a pretty nice and quiet pattern heading into New Years.

Wishing you and your families a very Merry Christmas Acadiana!
