It is that time of the year when clouds can ruin a forecast.

Low clouds hung around over central Acadiana on Sunday holding temperatures on the cool side in the mid 60s but, 50 miles to the west, where the sun came out, highs climbed into the mid 70s in Lake Charles.

If the clouds finally clear out tonight there is a good chance for patchy to dense fog to develop Monday morning but if the clouds hold that will limit the fog potential.

The good news is we should finally see some sunshine Monday afternoon warming temperatures into the low to mid 70s.

Tuesday a warm front will try to lift out of the Gulf and over Acadiana pushing temperatures into the mid to upper 70s and provide the chance for hit or miss showers and storms in the afternoon.

Widespread scattered showers and storms are likely Wednesday afternoon as we will be sandwiched between the warm front over the Gulf Coast and our next approaching cold front in the Great Plains.

Models are coming into better agreement that the cold front will swing through Acadiana Thursday morning producing more showers and storms as it sweeps across the region.

With the front arriving in the morning it now looks completely dry for trick-or-treating Thursday night but it will be cold and breezy with temperatures near 50 and winds blowing at 10-20 mph.

The cold air looks to stick around as a deep upper level trough will build over the eastern half of the country by Friday and into the weekend as highs will only top out in the upper 50s to lower 60s and morning lows will dip down into the upper 30s to lower 40s.

Even into the following week temperatures remain on the cool side with highs in the mid to upper 60s Monday and Tuesday.
