While we bask in spring-like air through the weekend, I’m keeping a close eye on the Arctic air that is still lurking along the US/Canadian border. These are 5 PM temperatures on Friday, showing the bitterly cold air covering much of Canada and the northern fringe of the United States. While this air will stay put for a while, there are indications in the long-range models that this cold air will dive southward later next week. We may see a strong cold front move across Acadiana by later next Friday, with highs only in the 60s for next weekend. I gambled and put in much of my garden on Friday, with the understanding I may need to be covering for a potential frost before the month ends!
