The upper-level disturbance that was responsible for the numerous showers over the past few days has started to push out of the area which will allow for much drier and cooler air to start filtering in across the region.
Temperatures have already started to fall across Acadiana this afternoon in the wake of this morning's cold frontal passage.
Expect overnight lows into Monday morning to drop into the lower and mid-40s with gradually clearing skies.
Mostly sunny skies are expected throughout Monday afternoon as highs struggle to reach the lower 50s.
However, with a northerly breeze in place on Monday, wind chills will remain in the 40s for the entirety of the afternoon!
Temperatures will quickly plummet Monday night into Tuesday morning.
Expect the first freeze of the season on Tuesday morning as low temperatures fall into the upper 20s to lower 30s across Acadiana.
You'll want to take the necessary precautions to protect 3 out of the 4 P's:
We are not expecting freezing temperatures for more than 3-4 hours, so pipes should be okay this go round.
A little warmer on Wednesday as southerly flow returns ahead of our next surface low pressure feature.
This feature will give us a good chance to see scattered showers late in the day on Wednesday and through Thursday morning.
We will start to dry out on Thursday afternoon.
Clouds will linger around for Friday as parts of the upper-level energy remain across the region.
Upcoming weekend looks good with anywhere from mainly sunny to partly cloudy skies anticipated as highs settle into the mid and upper 50s.
Y'all have a great week and bundle up for the start of it!
