Whether it's Friday night football (bring jackets and sweaters) or the UL Homecoming game and festivities, or you're just waiting on Halloween, the weather will be extremely cooperative.
Look for the same stratiform clouds that were here late yesterday and again Friday afternoon to gradually thin this evening as winds also begin to diminish.
Low temperatures by Saturday morning will be in the upper 40s.
Saturday will be a sunny and cool day, with more perfect football weather for the 11am UL Homecoming Game kick-off.

Temperatures will drop nicely Saturday night into the upper 40s, perhaps as low as the mid-40s by Sunday morning.
