It looks as if the days of dripping faucets and frost-kissed faces are over at least for the time being in Acadiana. The Arctic blast that has created chaos with frozen precipitation, frozen pipes, and falling flurries is moving out of the area. Behind it are more seasonal conditions and a threat of showers.

Saturday morning's low temperature will probably dip near the freezing mark. That will be the last we should see of 32-degrees or colder for the next week or so. While it might be a little more tolerable for heading outside you'll probably want to stay inside at least for the first part of the work week because of rain.

Forecasters with the National Weather Service say a storm system approaching the area from the west should start to kick up showers and thunderstorms across the area late in the day on Sunday. There's an even better chance of rain in the forecast for Sunday night.

The return to work and school for a lot of students across the area on Monday might be complicated by rain across Acadiana at least for the early part of the day.  After Monday's rain threat sky conditions should include an abundance of sunshine and temperatures that are right in line with seasonal averages.
