Video Forecast

Tonight: Gradual clearing with cold conditions. Breezy. Lo: 38.

Tomorrow: A very cold start. Sunny and cool. Hi: 64.​
Sunday: A very chilly start, then sunny and mild. Hi: 71.​
The clouds will clear out tonight and the breeze will eventually die down. However, a very cold air mass will settle into Acadiana. Look for the temp to drop into the 30s by Saturday morning. After a very chilly start tomorrow we will see plenty of sunshine with high pressure in control. Look for the afternoon high to be in the 60s with no threat of rain this weekend. The weather picture only gets better into Sunday with the pick-of-the-week as the mercury climbs to 70 plus with ample sunshine. Veterans Day will start off warm and dry, but rain quickly invades the Gulf Coast overnight into Tuesday. The next cold front to make an impact on Acadiana will be a very strong one with the coldest air of the season and the chilliest temps in several months. Once the front moves through early Tuesday you can expect showers to eventually end, but the temp will struggle to reach the mid 40s during the day. The wind will be howling all day with gusts of more than 30 mph and wind chills into Wednesday morning could reach the teens for northern Parishes. This will be the first hard freeze of the season for most, if not all of Acadiana as the temp drops below 32. No frozen precip is expected at this time. Some moderation in temp is expected later next week as moisture streams up from the Gulf of Mexico, but we will still be below average for mid-November standards. ​
