Happy Thanksgiving, Acadiana!

After a few rounds of scattered showers and storms on Thursday, it looks like we will get a little bit of a break during the evening and overnight hours before activity quickly picks up again on Friday and the weekend.

It will be a warm and muggy night with lows struggling to fall into the mid and upper 60s.

Patchy fog will be likely first thing on Friday morning as moisture increases across the region. Some dense fog in spots can not be ruled out.

A warm front will continue advancing northward on Friday which will leave us in more of the warm and unstable side of things.

Additionally, with a healthy amount of low-level moisture in place, expect a good scattering of those showers and storms throughout the day.

Some of these storms that develop could be on the stronger side at times.

In fact, all of Acadiana remains hatched in for a marginal risk of severe weather throughout the day with our primary concerns being hail and damaging winds.

You'll want to stay with the katc storm team for the very latest..

As we head into the weekend, the pattern will remain active and unsettled as an upper-level trough starts to approach from the west which will induce a surface low pressure feature in SE Texas on Saturday.

We'll likely see rounds of scattered showers throughout Saturday, but some breaks in the action will be possible.

That surface feature will eventually move right on top us off heading into Sunday which will keep rain chances on the high side at least through the first half of the day on Sunday.

Some locally heavy rainfall will be possible.

In fact, we could be looking to pick up and additional 3-4" (with localized higher amounts of 5 + inches possible in some spots) through the course of the weekend.

That same weather feature will actually continuing strengthening as it pulls northeastward toward the east coast into next week.

We will then be on the backside of the feature with drier and much colder air filtering into Acadiana.

We will be talking highs in the 50s, with lows mainly in the 30s and 40s.

Monday night into Tuesday morning could be our first freeze of the year.

Y'all have a great end to the week!
