A cold front has stalled along the I-10 corridor across Acadiana leading to quite a temperature difference between inland and coastal communities. This front will wobble back and forth through the day today. Generally, areas north of I-10 will stay in the 50s all day while coastal areas will be in the 60s. Showers will continue off and on throughout the day. Tonight, the front settles along the coast leading to colder temperatures for all of Acadiana. Most of the area will see lows in the low and mid 40s with a few more shower opportunities.

Today: Passing showers. Cloudy and cool. High: 61.

Tonight: Much colder. A few showers. Low: 46.

Wednesday: Cloudy and chilly. Nuisance rain. High: 55.

The front is expected to settle along the coast overnight leading to some chilly weather Wednesday with passing showers. Thursday, an area of low pressure will emerge from the Gulf and will produce widespread thunderstorms. Heavy rain is possible and there is a low-end risk of severe weather where a few storms may produce damaging wind gusts and maybe a spin-up tornado. Finally, we will see sunshine return Friday as colder and drier air settles in for the weekend.
