The weather pattern will remain quite favorable for Acadiana into the weekend albeit with milder nights and warmer afternoons as high pressure over the Eastern U.S. remains the dominant feature in our forecast.

Look for temperatures overnight into Friday morning to be roughly 10 degrees warmer than last night with readings in the mid-50s by daybreak.

In addition, temperatures will likely meet up closer to the dew points after midnight, resulting in the chance of some locally dense fog formation in spots by morning.

Any fog that develops will burn off quickly Friday with mostly sunny skies and temperatures topping out in the upper 70s to near 80°.

Temperatures Friday night will bottom out in the upper 50s with the chance of some fog again developing for Saturday morning.

Look for much the same this weekend with patchy morning fog giving way to fair to partly cloudy skies accompanied by afternoon temperatures in the upper 70s to near 80°.

Changes are on the way next week as our next front pushes through Sunday night yielding some brief cooling and sunny skies Monday.

The next weather-maker, and the first one in a while, will bring a good chance of showers and some thunderstorms either late Tuesday night or into Wednesday.

A few storms with this next weather system could be on the strong side, but it remains too early to tell as to whether there could be a threat of any severe storms.

At this point, Thanksgiving still looks good for the area with partly cloudy skies and seasonable temperatures somewhere in the lower 70s.

More active weather and the chance of storms will return to the area into the weekend that follows Thanksgiving.
