Lafayette Weather – Storms Late, Much Colder Tomorrow
This past weekend we had a cold front move through the area and drop our temperatures. Tonight we can expect a repeat of that. A cold front will push through the Acadiana area after midnight tonight. It is expected to bring showers and perhaps some heavy thunderstorms to South Louisiana just as the last system did.
Dave Baker our meteorologist friend from KATC TV 3 is forecasting today to be a mix of clouds and sun with rain chances increasing as the day wears on. By tonight we could see a broader area of rain and embedded heavy showers before midnight. The greatest threat for severe weather is forecast for northern and central sections of the state.
The front should pass in the wee small hours of Thursday with rains ending from the west by midday. Skies should begin to clear and a gusty north wind will keep temperatures in the low 60′s for the early part of the morning. Temperatures will begin steadily dropping through out the day eventually coming close to the freezing mark by early Friday. The forecast for Friday and The New Orleans Bowl on Saturday is mostly sunny with seasonable temperatures.
