Lafayette Weather – Could There Be Snow?
Looking out the studio window in the wee small hours of this Tuesday morning snow is the last thing I am thinking about. I am waiting for my knuckles to get some color back into them after being white from gripping the steering wheel so hard on the drive in. The fog was "tick tick" and will stay that way for a good part of the early morning hours today.
Will this fog cause a problem for Tuesday morning school buses and carpools? Chances are the further east you live the better the possibilities of that. A cold front is pushing through the area this morning and should clear much of Acadiana by sunrise. The current radar scan from the National Weather Service in Lake Charles shows a thin line of rain associated with the front moving across Jeff Davis and Acadia Parishes.
Once the cold front moves through later today you can expect much colder weather with today's high temperature in middle 50's. That will be about 15 degrees cooler than we felt yesterday afternoon. The sky will clear and should remain that way for most of today and tomorrow.
What about the snow? That could enter the picture on Thursday night and early Friday morning. A reinforcing blast of cold air is expected to move through the area during that time and if the temperatures remain cold enough there is a chance of at least a wintry mix of precipitation.
Right now forecasters are thinking that chance of snow will be at best 30% and the possibility of accumulation is non existent.Still the chance to see falling frozen precipitation along the I-10 corridor is worth staying up for. I just wouldn't bother unpacking the skis or the snowshoes just yet..
