After some light upper atmospheric moisture moves out later this morning, higher pressure will insure that the day remains pleasant. Temperatures are expected to reach the mid to low 50s this afternoon while also staying mostly sunny. Overnight lows may dip near the freezing mark, but once that high pressure system centralizes itself to our east, southerly winds will drive temperatures into the upper 50s and possibly the low 60s. Expect a high temperature of 60° here in Lafayette; our first day in the 60s since January 30th. Enjoy the next two days while you can though, we're tracking a cold front that will likely arrive during the early morning hours of Easter. You may need an umbrella to combat the scattered rain showers to go with your Sunday best. The current timetable (and happy medium between forecast models) for the rain looks to be between 4:00 am – 10:00 am Sunday morning. Temperatures are expected to fall into the low 40s for Monday with another chance of morning showers while Tuesday stays dry with equally cool conditions. However, afternoon highs will bounce back into the mid to low 50s on both Wednesday and Thursday with sunny to mostly sunny skies.
