Lafayette Weather – Another Winter Blast Is On The Way

It was nice to feel the warmth of the sunshine yesterday afternoon. Especially since the day before we were shivering in our shoes wondering what bridge might be open across the Vermilion River. The good news is that the warmer temperatures of Saturday afternoon and those forecast for today should keep the roads and bridges ice free. The bad news is Monday will bring a return to Winter to Acadiana.

While Monday morning might start out pleasant enough, Monday afternoon and evening could be a bear, a polar bear that is. Another cold front is expected to sweep through the area and that will mean a drop in temperatures during the day on Monday.

There will be a slight risk of freezing rain late Monday night into Tuesday and then a chance of freezing rain or snow during the day. Right now the chances are very small for the frozen precipitation to even occur but we know it only takes a light glazing for roads and bridges to become impassable.

Bitterly cold temperatures will settle in for Tuesday with a high only expected to reach 36. The overnight low on Tuesday into Wednesday morning could be near 20 degrees. There will be a warm up after that as temperatures moderate through the end of the week.
