The beautiful fall weather looks to continue across Acadiana into the first half of the new work week.
However, first thing Monday morning we will have one more chilly start with lows in the low to mid 40s.
The good news is just like the past couple days temperatures will warm up quickly with highs reaching the upper 60s to near 70 under a mix of sun and high clouds.
Some clouds will linger overnight Monday holding lows in the low to mid 50s, which is where we should be this time of year.
Tuesday afternoon temperatures will climb into the lower 70s under partly sunny skies.
Now a couple models do hint that a weak cool front could try to swing through the region Tuesday afternoon but I think for the most part this front will fizzle out and not reach us.
The only thing this front might do is clear out the clouds Tuesday night allowing lows Wednesday morning to dip into the upper 40s to lower 50s.
Wednesday afternoon looks fantastic with mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid 70s.
Thursday clouds will thicken across Acadiana but it will be warm with highs approaching 80 before our next cold front arrives late in the day producing scattered showers during the evening.
Most of the rain will be out of the area by Friday morning but there could still be a few light showers close to the coast in Iberia and St. Mary parish.
The bigger story on Friday is that another shoot of winter air moves into Acadiana with highs staying the low to mid 50s all day.
Factor in the wind chill, thanks to a steady north breeze at 10-20 mph, it will feel like the 40s all day.
Thus, dress warm and bring the blankets again this week for high school football Friday night.
And the chill air looks to stick around for next weekend with highs in the 50s on Saturday and lower 60s on Sunday.
