Wes: Expect another cold, windy evening across the area; much warmer Tuesday

We have a lull in showers now, but that will change as we head overnight as a strong cold front crosses the region.

Locally there were dozens of reports of severe weather across Acadiana Saturday morning, with wind damage to a number of structures, numerous trees felled and power outages.

The North Country is expected to be hit the hardest during a three-day stretch starting today, with snow and lasting through Monday, when up a half-inch of rain and wind gusts approaching 50 miles per hour are predicted. Expect sustained winds of 25-30mph with gusts close to 50mph. A rain and sleet mixture will fall in the valleys and an icy glaze and sleet showers will occur in the higher elevations both east and west of the river.

And the possibility of a thunderstorm remains through Monday evening, the National Weather Service said.

Monday Morning: Temperatures are a little spread, but we're generally seeing 40's and low to mid 50's. The strongest winds will be in the northeast portion of the state, where High Wind Warnings are in effect from 9 a.m.to 10 p.m. Monday for gusts in excess of 60 miles per hour.

The Killeen area saw up to about three-fourths of an inch of rain late Friday evening, and that trend could continue for the foreseeable, future, according to meteorologist Daniel Huckaby.

However, sunshine returns Tuesday and temperatures will climb back into the low 60s!

For the rest of tonight, we'll find mainly clear skies.

After enjoying highs in the low 70s and 60s today, the warmth is going to get chased out of the state.

The strong wind Central Florida has been dealing with to start our work week will eventually come down early tonight, and under a clear sky, our lows are set to drop quickly.
