Showers and thunderstorms have developed across Acadiana on this Thanksgiving afternoon, and we're going to hold onto the wet weather through this evening. And although we'll see a lull in activity for Black Friday, another round of steadier and heavier showers and storms are going to roll through the region Saturday.
Moderate to heavy rain will hang through this evening as the first of two disturbances slide across the Deep South. Severe weather will be possible as well, but it will likely be very isolated. The biggest threat will be flash flooding. However, heavier thunderstorms could produce gusty winds and an isolated tornado can't be completely ruled out.
Rain will begin to taper off well after Midnight, with patchy dense fog possible through the early morning hours. Temperatures will remain mild, with lows in 60s. Mostly cloudy to overcast skies will hang around for much of Black Friday, and a few more showers will be possible as well.
Tonight: Rain and thunder. Heavier early. Low: 63.
Black Friday: Patchy AM fog. Mostly cloudy. Isolated showers. High: 70.
Friday night: Mostly cloudy with a few showers. Low: 62.
Saturday: Showers and thunderstorms. Some strong. High: 71.
As we kick off our Saturday, a cold front will begin to slide along the Gulf Coast. Ahead of it, showers and thunderstorms will begin to fire up across Acadiana. Unfortunately, severe weather will again be a threat to parts of the region. The rain will sharply come to end once the front passes through, with skies clearing out pretty quickly later that evening.
Sunny skies and seasonable temperatures are on track for Sunday and Monday, with temperatures climbing into the low 70s on both days. However, another cold front will bring rain back to the region Tuesday evening into Wednesday.
