Continuous News and Weather for Acadiana

Rob Perillo

Weather stays on a roll…

A favorably dry and pleasant weather pattern will continue for Acadiana over the next couple of days before changes arrive into the weekend.

Another stormy day Saturday; Flash Flood Watch continues

Acadiana remains under the gun for additional locally heavy rains and storms through Saturday night before the threat finally diminishes Sunday morning. A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for all of Acadiana through 7pm Saturday for the potential of 2-3″ of rain or more possible through Saturday evening.

Acadiana stays in “on and off” stormy pattern through Saturday

Acadiana will stay in an “on and off” stormy pattern over the next several days as a series of upper level disturbances continue to interact with a quasi-stationary surface boundary that has been draped across Eastern Texas into Northwestern Louisiana.

Storms may arrive sooner than later…

As of late Friday evening, the latest Predictive Radar (HRRR) Model has upped the timing for showers and storms arriving into Acadiana by daybreak Saturday.

Stormy Saturday, sunny Sunday

Acadiana remains on track for a stormy Saturday with the risk of a few severe storms and locally a couple of inches of rain. A vigorous upper level disturbance will ignite more showers and storms across Texas overnight through Saturday morning with activity migrating across Acadiana during the morning through midday hours.

Staying warm, storms likely Saturday

The weather pattern for Acadiana will continue in its “summer preview” mode over the next few days with a subtle increase in the chance of an isolated shower or storm through Friday.
The best chance of storms should arrive Saturday

Taste of early summer continues…rain chances spike Saturday

A taste of early summer will continue for Acadiana over the next several days with partly to mostly cloudy skies, breezy, warm and humid conditions to finish out the week. Gusty southeasterly winds will continue during the day Wednesday feeding more strong to severe storms that will continue to pound portions of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Missouri.

Wait, what? No cool fronts for more than a week

Acadiana’s weather pattern has slipped into the pre-summer doldrums with a mixture of clouds & sun, breezy, warm and humid conditions anticipated for the entire week. Rain chances however, will gradually rise by the end of the week, and most especially, into the weekend.

Gorgeous weekend weather

After some interesting weather across Acadiana Friday afternoon, a much nicer and quieter weather pattern is expected for this weekend.

Few Storms and Some Small Hail in Acadiana This Afternoon

Video Update: Some interesting weather this afternoon across Acadiana as we’re seeing (as expected) scattered showers & a few storms following the backside of the cold upper low pressure system that brought the strong storms to the area yesterday afternoon.

Significant severe weather threat for Acadiana Thursday

Strong to severe storms will be likely for Acadiana Thursday with prime-time for the strongest storms from west to east beginning from roughly during the mid-morning and ending by mid-late afternoon…give or take a few hours. Per the Storm Prediction Center (SPC), all of Acadiana is hatched in for an “Enhanced” risk (level 3 out of 5) of severe storms.

Risk of severe storms increasing for Thursday

The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) upped the threat of severe weather for much of Acadiana Thursday from “Slight” to an “Enhanced Risk”, a level 3 out of 5. Another strong storm system is heading this way, and just because we didn’t see much severe weather the last time we had and enhanced risk over the area Saturday, does NOT mean that we won’t see severe weather this time around!

Late Afternoon Severe Weather Update

As of 5pm Saturday most storms in the Acadiana region were behaving and staying well below severe levels…it’s been another story in the northern part of the state, where numerous severe thunderstorm and a few tornadoes warnings have been flying through this afternoon.

Early Afternoon Severe Weather Update for Acadiana

Strong winds will continue for Acadiana through this evening while the risk of strong storms should increase later this afternoon into the early evening hours.
