As we continue to be in this warm and soupy weather pattern heavy sea fog will once again slide over Acadiana later tonight limiting visibility to below a half mile by Tuesday morning.

Dense Fog Advisory has been issued for all of Acadiana and the Gulf waters from 9PM tonight until 10AM Tuesday morning.

Dense fog will develop over Acadiana later tonight

Here is a look at the latest visibility projections for the next 24 hours.

 

Besides the fog tonight/tomorrow morning there is the slight chance for a few isolated showers as a weak disturbance moves out of Texas and into Acadiana.

Then during the afternoon the fog will mix out and we could have some sunshine peek through the clouds with highs topping out in the mid 70s.

Wednesday looks to be more of the same with heavy fog in the morning but it might fizzle out faster as winds pick up out of the south at 10-18 mph helping to push highs a few degrees warmer into the upper 70s with a few spots filtering with 80.

Wednesday will definitely feel more like late March then early February

Thursday will be the transition day as our next strong cold front dives down through Acadiana during the evening producing a few scattered showers.

A few showers possible just behind the front Thursday evening

The bigger story with this front is that it brings cooler and breezy conditions for Friday with temperatures in the upper 40s and lower 50s but it will feel quite chilly with the wind blowing out of the north, so don’t put away the winter gear just yet.

The cooler air hangs around for Saturday with highs below average in the mid 50s but a warm front lifts back over the region late Saturday helping to push highs back near 70 by Sunday afternoon.

As this front lifts over Acadiana there could be a couple stray showers Sunday morning but outside that the weekend looks to be dry for any outdoor events/activities.

Next Monday & Tuesday will be on the warm side with highs in the 70s before another Canadian cold front arrives late Tuesday creating a few showers and another round of cool and breezy conditions for the mid part of the week.
