A strong cold front that pushed through Acadiana this morning will insure winter temperatures for the area into the weekend.
Plenty of clouds and some patchy light rains and/or drizzle/mist will likely stay in the area overnight but should be tapering into midday Friday.
No significant winter precipitation is expected anywhere in Acadiana. Latest Power Doppler 3 here.

Temperatures Friday will stay mostly in the 30s, possibly peaking in the lower 40s for an hour or two tomorrow afternoon under dreary, cloudy skies with breezy north winds continuing.
Skies should clear Friday night, allowing temperatures to drop into the upper 20s in most areas...not a pipe-buster, but still cold by Acadiana standards.

The weather pattern next week looks relatively quiet with one system bypassing us to the south early next week but just generating some cloud cover into Monday.
The rest of the week appears to stay seasonably cool and dry with a fair bit of sun. Our temperatures look to get back a little closer to normal for the following weekend.
