Patchy light rain showers will remain in the forecast for Acadiana through this evening, but drier conditions are on the way, with eventually some sun Friday into the weekend as seasonably cool temperatures persist.
In the near term, expect roughly a 40% chance of scattered mostly light rain showers up until midnight, with some misty sprinkles thereafter as temperatures cool into the low-mid 40s by morning.
After a cloudy start Friday, look for clouds to gradually thin into the afternoon with mostly sunny skies to finish our day.
Temperatures will top out in the seasonably cool mid-upper 50s Friday afternoon.
With clear skies Friday night into Saturday morning a winter chill is anticipated to return with lows dropping into the mid-upper 30s...and there could be patchy frost in spots come Saturday morning especially in more rural areas and northern portions of Acadiana.
This weekend will be marked by a mixture of sun and high clouds, with a weak upper Gulf disturbance bypassing the area to the south Saturday night.
This system however should shoot plenty of high clouds, and perhaps some light rain showers our way late Saturday afternoon into Saturday night, ending early Sunday, but for now we're keeping "measurable" rain chances at 20%.
High temperatures this weekend will still be running some 10° or below normal...in the upper 50s to lower 60s.
The weather pattern into next week looks sunnier and remaining cool.
Eventually milder temperatures are anticipated later in the week into the following weekend accompanied the chance of scattered showers for now.
