On and off showers and thunderstorms will continue into the night across Acadiana and will gradually taper after a cool front passes through the area after midnight and before daybreak Saturday.
A few areas may see a couple of locally heavy downpours of an inch or so of rain, otherwise most of us will likely see much less than a half inch of rain through daybreak Saturday.
At this point, no organized severe weather is expected, but there could be a few isolated storms that may contain gusty winds and locally intense downpours, especially with isolated storms that may form along and ahead of the cool front.
You can monitor the local doppler radars here.
After morning clouds, skies will begin to clear from the west to east across Acadiana into the afternoon hours with temperatures topping out in the mid-60s accompanied by breezy northwest winds.
Chilly conditions and clear skies are expected Saturday night with lows dropping into the lower 40s through Sunday morning.
Sunday will be a mostly sunny and cool day with temperatures topping out in the low to mid 60s.
Milder temperatures are expected for most of Thanksgiving week with mostly sunny and milder conditions anticipated for Monday.

Temperatures Tuesday will rise into the upper 70s.
A frontal boundary will sag into the area Wednesday keeping some showers in the forecast but it won't cool much, with temperatures holding in the low to mid 70s.
In fact, expect plenty of cloud cover is expected for most of next week beyond Monday with slim to no rain chances beginning Thanksgiving and continuing through the first part of the following weekend.
High temperatures may drop to the lower 70s Wednesday, but rise into the mid-70s Thursday (Thanksgiving) and upper 70s to near 80 Friday into the weekend.
While rain chances should stay low Thursday through Saturday they could be on the increase for next Sunday and/or the following Monday as the next cool front approaches.
All in all after a cool start to November and a one day arctic chill, the month will finish with above normal temperatures and there may a day or two in the 10 Day Forecast where we might push the 80 degree mark!
The first week of December however, is looking cooler.
