Enjoy the mild temperatures this evening because they will be going away for a few days as winter makes a return to Acadiana.
A strong cold front will slide through Acadiana Tuesday morning sparking of rounds of scattered showers throughout most of the day.
There is a slight chance for even a few thunderstorms but nothing severe.
Rain totals look to be on the light side around a quarter to a half inch but a few spots could maybe receive up to an inch.
To go along with the rain cooler air will be moving into the region causing temperatures to fall during the day.
We will start out in the mid 60s but by lunchtime temperatures will dip into the lower 50s and even drop all the way down to the upper 30s by Wednesday morning.
Lastly, behind this front we will see our winds pick up and turn brisk out of the north at 15-25 mph with gusts up to 30 mph making it feel even cooler so have the heavy jacket ready for Tuesday.
Sunshine will come back out on Wednesday but it will still be cool and a tad breezy with highs only topping out in the mid 50s.
It will be another chilly start on Thursday with lows in the upper 30s again.
Clouds move back in on Thursday afternoon keeping temperatures below average in the upper 50s to near 60.
There is a slight chance for a few showers, especially down towards Iberia and St. Mary parish Thursday night into Friday morning as a low pressure system moves out of the Gulf and heads for the mouth of the Mississippi.
As this low moves off into Mississippi and Alabama we should have a more seasonal day with partly sunny skies and highs in the mid 60s.
The weekend looks fantastic again with lots of sunshine both days and highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
Scattered showers will be possible next Monday ahead our an approaching cold front which will swing through the Bayou state Tuesday morning finally clearing out the rain by Tuesday afternoon.
Behind this front it looks like another shoot of winter like air moves into Acadiana with highs in the 50s next Tuesday and Wednesday.
