The pesky clouds have lingered across central and eastern Acadiana on Monday but as the upper level low finally begins to make progress off to the east the clouds will completely clear across the region this evening.

Christmas Eve looks fantastic with bright sunny skies and temperature in the lower 70s.

A fair amount of high clouds will slide over the Pelican state on Christmas but it will still be comfortable with highs in the lower 70s.

The clouds will linger for the rest of the week and with winds turning southerly a few isolated showers will be possible Thursday and Friday afternoon.

Then this weekend the models have come into a little better agreement on the timing of our next cold front during the afternoon on Sunday.

Thus, Saturday will be the last warm day with highs in the mid 70s under mostly cloudy skies with a few showers possible.

Sunday the front swings through producing our best chance for scattered showers.

Just like this last system clouds could wrap around the upper level system causes overcast skies to continue on Monday with temperatures falling into the lower 60s.

The sunshine finally comes out again for New Years Eve but it will be on the cool with highs in the lower 60s.

Then if you are heading out to ring in 2020 you might need a jacket as temperatures will be falling into the upper 40s to lower 50s by midnight.
