The rainy weather will continue through the evening before eventually moving off to the east as a cold front sweeps across the region.

We also have Tropical Storm Olga in the Gulf but this system is going to merge with the cold front and could help to enhance heavy showers/storms for area to our east near New Orleans but we should not see much impacts from Olga.

What Olga could bring to Acadiana is some breezy conditions overnight as winds will be picking up to about 10-16 mph out of the West.

Winds will stay breezy through much of Saturday helping to pull down cooler air as highs will only top out in the mid 60s under mostly cloudy skies.

However, as the cold front lifts farther to the northeast it will take the clouds with it so maybe by the afternoon we could see times of sunshine.

Skies will turn mostly clear Saturday night allowing lows to dip down into the upper 40s to lower 50s by Sunday morning.

The good news is with a full day of sunshine it should turn out to be a nice fall day with highs in the low to mid 70s on Sunday.

The mild temperatures will continue into the first half of next week with highs in the mid to upper 70s on Monday and Tuesday with a mix of sun and clouds.

Beyond Tuesday the long range models are fairly different concerning the timing of our next cold front.

The GFS is the faster model with the front arriving on Wednesday producing scattered showers and then turning dry and chilly for Halloween with temperatures in the 60s for a high.

The Euro is much slower with scattered showers on Wednesday from moisture coming out of the Gulf followed by more scattered showers on Thursday as the cold front swings through Louisiana.

Hopefully, in the coming days the models come into better agreement and we can get the rains to clear out in time for trick-or-treating Thursday night but right now it definitely looks on the cool side with temperatures mostly likely in the 50s.

Behind this front it looks to be a chilly start to November with highs in the 60s next Friday through Sunday with morning lows in the 40s.
