With the first freeze of the season, the National Weather Service has issued a Freeze Warning for all of Acadiana for Tuesday morning, but it shouldn't be a pipe-busting cold.

Certainly protect the plants and pets as temperatures are expected to drop into the upper 20s to lower 30s by morning...with most spots at or below freezing for roughly 2-4 hours toward daybreak, Tuesday.

Surface high pressure will advance across Acadiana overnight through Tuesday allowing for much lighter winds and plenty of sunshine again Tuesday.

Temperatures Tuesday will be roughly 5 degrees warmer than Monday, in the mid-upper 50s, but it will feel even milder than that with light winds.

Those winds turn will turn southerly Tuesday night into Wednesday keeping temperatures closer to the lower-mid 40s after possibly briefly dipping down into the upper 30s early during the overnight period.

Breezy and milder conditions will follow into Wednesday followed by an upper level and surface trough of low pressure that will form to our west allowing for increasing clouds accompanied by shower activity by day's end.

A bit of an "over-running" pattern (warm/moist upper conditions over-riding the shallow cool air at the surface) will develop into Wednesday night and Thursday keeping the chance of some rain and/or periods of drizzle accompanied by chilly temperatures Thursday, into Thursday night and perhaps early Friday.

This system shouldn't be too much of a "weather-maker" but more of a nuisance with chilly rains.

Clouds may linger into early Friday, but look for a sun and high cloud mix into Friday afternoon into this weekend accompanied by cooler than normal temperatures and low rain chances.

Tropical Climate Notes: Monday November 30th marks the official end of a record hurricane season.

For Louisiana, the memorable and devastating season was marked with 5 storms, 3 hurricanes, two of which were major hurricanes (Laura and Delta).

In addition to nearly a month total of being in the "cone or uncertainty" portions of Louisiana were under some sort of tropical watch or warning for 474 hours, or approximately 19.75 days!

Good riddance to the season!
