Storm threat ends overnight with a Winter chill on Thursday

Posted at 3:33 PM, Feb 05, 2020

We will still have to watch any showers and storms this evening for the possibility of a couple stronger cells as the cold front crawls through the area.

Over running light to moderate showers will linger behind the front overnight into Thursday morning before the rains finally end by lunchtime.

More importantly this front will bring some chilly air to Acadiana on Thursday.

Under mostly cloudy skies temperatures will hovering in the upper 40s to lower 50s for most of the day.

Factor in the winds blowing out of the WNW at 10-15 mph and feel like temperatures will only be in the low to mid 40s, so bundle up on Thursday.

With skies finally clearing and winds dying down Thursday night lows Friday morning look quite cold with temperatures in the low to mid 30s.

Patchy frost/light freeze will be possible for all of Acadiana meaning you will need to cover sensitive plants.

Friday afternoon we will warm up quickly under bright sunny skies with highs climbing into the low to mid 60s.

Saturday looks nice as well with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid to upper 60s.

There is a slight chance for maybe a stray shower Saturday afternoon as a weak cool front tries to work down into the area.

With this front draped over the region and winds flipping out of the SE on Sunday we will have a few more clouds but still mild with highs in the upper 60s.

Looking ahead to next week our weather pattern will be rather unsettled with a few different systems heading for the region.

Clouds and the chance for scattered showers will be possible every day with the best chance for heavy showers and a few storms possible next Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
