Acadiana's weather will be chilled by a high pressure system building from the Rockies through Monday with plenty of daytime sunshine accompanied by lows eventually getting close to the frost/light freeze "zone" by Tuesday morning.
In the near term, expect breezy and colder conditions Sunday night with temperatures approaching the upper 30s to lower 40s area-wide.
A northwest breeze near 5-8 mph will yield wind chills closer to the mid-30s first thing Monday morning.
Sunny, breezy and seasonably cool conditions are expected for our Monday with temperatures topping out no higher than the mid-upper 50s.
Clear skies, dry air and light winds will translate to temperatures reaching the low-mid 30s for Tuesday morning so covering the plants and making sure the pets have a warm place to stay is advised.
A light freeze will be possible Monday night/Tuesday morning for most of the Northern Acadiana parishes, specifically Allen, Evangeline and St Landry...but there won't be any pipe issues.
Mostly sunny skies accompanied by some high level cirrus clouds are anticipated Tuesday into Wednesday as temperatures get a little milder.
Highs will get back to the low-mid 60s Tuesday and will be near 70 by Wednesday.
It stays mild with increasing clouds for Thursday ahead of a system that should bring a pretty good chance of showers to the area Thursday night into early Friday.
The preliminary blush on next weekend appears partly cloudy and seasonable but it could be followed by a dynamic, and perhaps stormy Monday.
