After a balmy weekend and start to the week it will feel more like November in Acadiana for about 36 hours! High pressure will advance in the wake of a cool front that pushed through the area Monday.
Temperatures will likely drop into the lower 50s by Tuesday morning. Look for fair to partly cloudy skies, breezy and cool conditions for our Tuesday afternoon with highs closer to the upper 60s.
Chilly conditions, with lows in the mid-upper 40s are expected Tuesday night through Wednesday morning before the next warm-up comes Wednesday afternoon.
Highs will top out in the low mid-70s Wednesday but will likely threaten the 80 degree mark Thursday and Friday.
Disturbances aloft in the sub-tropical jet stream may produce scattered showers starting Wednesday night into Thursday.
Showers and storms will also be possible Friday into Friday night as the next front approaches.
Much cooler conditions are anticipated for Acadiana's weekend with lingering disturbances behind the front possibly leading to chilly rains Saturday. Temperatures will drop into the 50s and stay there all day Saturday with gusty north winds and occasional rains making it feel much more like winter.
For now we are expected skies to clear Sunday with seasonably cold conditions to start our Thanksgiving week.
The long-range outlook into next week calls for a fairly wet weather system next Tuesday/Wednesday with cool and dry weather expected for the latter part of our holiday week.
