Louisiana State Police sent out a bulletin early this morning that at about 3am the fog was so think in the area around LA182 and LA 318 in Sorrel they were urging motorist to avoid the area. There had been several crashes reported due to very dense fog. That dense fog might be a part of your morning commute today.

The good news is the fog will lift by mid morning and reveal blue skies. The afternoon temperature is expected to warm to almost 70 degrees. That should make today’s Dr. Martin Luther King Day holiday a great day for getting outside and enjoying some of Acadiana’s many parks and attractions.

Don’t be fooled by the spring like conditions you’ll notice today. Old Man Winter will be making a return trip to the area in the form of a cold front. That front is expected to push through Acadiana tonight and will bring a very slight risk of showers.

Tomorrow should find more sunshine in the area but temperatures will be decidedly cooler. The afternoon high on Tuesday will only reach the middle 50’s. That’s a change of about 15 degrees in a 24 hour period. The forecast low temperature on Wednesday morning is expected to drop below the freezing mark.

Dave Baker is suggesting the first part of the work week will be sunny and dry but a chance of showers will return to the area by Thursday. Temperatures will moderate through the course of the week but a late week cold front will again push temps below normal for this time of year by Friday.
