If you liked the weather across Acadiana Friday, but thought it could do with a little less wind, then you will absolutely love the local weather pattern into this weekend.
It will be chilly at night however, with temperatures near the light freeze/frost zone for both Saturday and Sunday mornings.
After a morning start with temperatures in the low-mid 30s, look for plenty of sunshine Saturday, with perhaps a few high level cirrus clouds invading from the west by late in the day. Highs Saturday will be right near 60 give or take a degree or two.
With generally fair skies and light winds into Saturday night/Sunday morning, temperatures will once again visit the low to mid 30s allowing for the possibility of frost once again.
So the bottom line: keep the tender vegetation covered and make sure the pets have a warm place to stay this weekend.
Even though a weak frontal trough is expected to pass through the area Sunday night, we are not expecting any "weather" with the system, and actually anticipating even milder conditions into Monday afternoon.
Mostly sunny skies are forecast Monday through most of Wednesday with highs in the mid-upper 60s Monday, lower 70s (near normal) Tuesday, and perhaps mid-70s Wednesday into Thursday. Clouds will begin to increase for Thursday.
Toward the end of the week there is a fair bit of model divergence between the European and GFS Models on Acadiana's next weather-maker, but for now it appears that there will be the risk of shower activity for both Friday and Saturday with definitively cooler air moving in by the end of next weekend and/or for the early part of Thanksgiving week.
No official forecast for Thanksgiving quite yet, but first blush is milder but with the possibility of some shower activity in the region...more on that in the days to come.
