Rain chances high Sunday; Turning colder for the start of the week

Posted at 7:14 PM, Dec 12, 2020

Quiet night ahead across Acadiana as low temperatures fall back into the upper 40s for northern parishes and lower 50s for our southern parishes.

It will be mild and breezy for your Sunday as clouds build into the afternoon.

Highs will settle into the lower 70s as southerly winds pick up to around 15-20 mph.

A few isolated showers will be possible early, but better rain chances arrive late tomorrow afternoon into tomorrow evening as a cold front pushes through.

We are under a marginal risk to see severe weather (level 1 out of 5) with gusty winds being the primary threat.

A few brief heavy downpours will be possible as most of us look to pick up around a half an inch to an inch of rainfall.

Some locally higher amounts will be possible especially for northern portions of Acadiana.

Widespread flash flooding should not be much of a concern.

The bulk of the shower and storm activity will push out of here later on tomorrow evening and we will be turning much colder by Monday.

Lows will start out in the 40s as highs struggle to reach the lower 50s with linger cloud cover remaining in place.

We will see a quick moving system late Tuesday into early Wednesday which will ensure temperatures stay below normal for the rest of next week.

Other than that, the majority of next week will remain relatively quiet across the region with no major weather issues anticipated.

Have a great rest of the weekend!
