As I sit and stare over the top of my computer monitor out the window I am dreaming of warm sunshine, white sand, scantily clad ladies and the only ice I want to see should be in my glass. That vision will only be in our dreams for the next several months as late fall does its best winter impression over the next couple of days.

Rain is expected to continue in Acadiana over the next day or so. The current radar scan shows where the heavier activity is. Dave Baker says the rain will eventually move out of the way by Wednesday.

Wednesday should be nice enough, but still rather chilly, then comes the really cold weather. Those who are participating in the Camellia Crossing to benefit Miles Perret Cancer Services on Wednesday evening will need their cold weather running gear to make sure they don't get too cold.

Thanksgiving Day should dawn to mostly clear skies but very cold temperatures. Dave currently has Thursday morning's low at 28-degrees in Lafayette. The rest of the holiday weekend looks good for traveling and for shopping too.
