Louisiana residents, sick and tired of November’s nearly 90-degree temperatures, will finally feel some relief. The summer swoon of mid-autumn is almost over and we may have experienced Mother Nature’s last “hot flashes” until spring.
No, it won’t be frost, but you’ll be looking for a jacket and some warm socks this weekend. Here’s what’s going on and what to expect as you plan for Thursday night’s Ragin Cajun football, Friday night’s high school playoff football, and an ever-growing list of weekend events and happenings.
Today should start with some patchy fog in the region. That should give way to bright sunshine for the rest of the day. A weak “back door” cold front will push through the area, sucking at least some of the humidity or mugginess out of the air for this afternoon. Also, we will be about five degrees cooler today than yesterday.
Once the sun goes down tonight you’ll really notice the chill. Rather than bottoming out overnight in the mid-60s, low temperatures will drop to a more seasonal 53 degrees. Thursday’s high will be about five degrees cooler than today, so you can see we’re slowly slipping into more seasonal temperatures.
By Friday, when you’re celebrating America’s Veterans, we should have a sunny day with a high of 80 degrees. Overnight to high school football you may want a jacket or poncho as there is a 40% chance of showers if another cold front sweeps through the area.
As the showers clear the area on Saturday, temperatures will slowly rise but will not reach the upper 50s until the afternoon. Sunday morning temperatures in southern Louisiana will likely be in the upper 30s. So when you’re contemplating your vacation plans, the weather will at least help get you in the mood, even if your wallet tells you no.
The long-term outlook calls for even cooler temperatures with rain showers at the start of the week. In fact, we could look at conditions until next Thursday, but by next weekend conditions should be perfect for great outdoor events like Cow Island Live, a combination music festival and overnight stay in Vermilion Parish.
We still don’t have a precise idea of what the Thanksgiving travel forecast will be, but best guesses currently point to a chance of ‘Breakaway Wednesday’ showers with seasonal conditions for the bank holiday long weekend.
