After some clouds early Friday, look for full sunshine, breezy winds and seasonable temperatures to finish out the week as high pressure advances into the region.

With a morning start in the low to mid 40s, temperatures will likely top out in the low-mid 60s Friday. Both the lows and highs will be right near normal for January 24th.

Clear skies and light winds Friday night will allow for a little more of a winter chill with Saturday morning lows dropping into mid-upper 30s to near 40 along the coast.

Saturday will start out mostly sunny but high clouds are expected to invade and thicken into the latter part of the afternoon ahead of our next weather system that will be advancing into the region from the northwest.

Temperatures Saturday should reach the lower to possibly mid-60s depending on the onset of cloud cover.

An area of low pressure is then expected to develop in the Gulf Sunday leading to periods of rain inland late Saturday night into Sunday morning.

Highest rain chances should be Saturday night, near 80% and near 60-70% early Sunday.

Rains Sunday should be confined mostly to the morning hours, with drier conditions developing into the afternoon.

Rain totals between Saturday night and Sunday should be in the 1/2" to 1" range once again...fairly similar to our last rainfall.

Acadiana should get a dry break Monday, but some more rains will be possible into mid-week with a rather unsettled pattern and difficult forecast beyond thanks to near zero model agreement.

Temperatures through much of next week look to be near normal, but if the Euro Model is to be believed, we could see a taste of some Canadian air into the first few days of February....we'll see.
