If you enjoyed the recent wave of fall-like weather in south Louisiana, get ready. Here it comes again.

A front passing through the area Wednesday will be followed by a wind shift out of the north, and lower temperatures, the National Weather Service reports.

For south Louisiana, that means showers and increased cloud cover Wednesday, followed by high temperatures near 70 and lows dropping to the mid-50s by Thursday night. Friday and Saturday mornings will be chilly, with lows in the 50s.

That means jackets may be in order as south Louisiana high school football teams begin the 2017 playoffs.

And conditions are likely to be pleasant for LSU's 11 a.m. kickoff against Arkansas on Saturday in Tiger Stadium.

Before we get there, warm and dry weather will continue early this week, the Weather Service said. Near record highs in the low to mid-80s are expected on Monday and Tuesday.
