After a stormy start to the week, windy and cooler conditions will spread into Acadiana through Tuesday.
A strong winter storm system in the Plains will move northeastward into the Midwest Tuesday ushering in windy and cooler conditions. Wind gusts to 30-35mph will be possible overnight through Tuesday afternoon with decreasing winds likely Wednesday.
Storms Monday produced numerous reports of pea-marble size hail but fortunately there have been no reports of significant wind damage nor tornadoes in Acadiana. Rain event totals from Sunday night through Monday afternoon were in the 1.5-2.5" range.
There is no rain in the forecast for at least the next 7-8 days.
A secondary surge of cool air will arrive Thursday/Friday with perhaps the last taste of winter-like temperatures for Acadiana this weekend.
Highs mid-week in the 60s will drop into the 50s this weekend while lows could approach the frost zone for Saturday and Sunday mornings.
It looks to stay dry with milder conditions through mid-next week.
