There was a definite chill in the air, early Wednesday morning, and with a steady breeze that chill hung around for the majority of the day.
This cold batch of air will continue to sit on Acadiana, sending temperatures down close to freezing again Wednesday night. The National Weather Service as extended the coverage of their Freeze Warning to include the I-10 corridor and the surrounding parishes, for a complete list of the parishes in the warning check the graphic below.
As the night goes on and the temperatures begin to drop we may see that warning extend out again, even if you are just south of the warning area temperatures will still be a few degrees shy of freezing. Sensitive plants will want to be tended to Wednesday night, and pets will want to be brought inside and out of the cold.
The rest of the work week won't be quite as cold, return flow will begin to kick in around the high pressure ridge which will push some warmer air into Acadiana. Highs on Thursday will be back up in the 60s and a light jacket will be all that's needed once the morning chill wears off.
Cloud cover will start to eat away at the sunshine by the end of the week, but it looks as if rain chances won't return until late in the weekend. Early model runs indicating we may get a round of wet weather Sunday, so be sure to stay tuned to the forecast through the week.
