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.
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.
Acadiana will finish off the week Friday with another mostly cloudy and warm day accompanied by a slight chance of a shower or storm, but the prospects of storms remains quite 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
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.
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.
After Acadiana was once again spared the brunt of a severe weather threat that was posed to the region earlier Friday, it’s nothing but smooth sailing weather-wise into the weekend, and for all of Festival International!
Acadiana’s next weather-maker will bring a good chance of rain and storms to the area by Thursday morning. In the near term, expect a general increase in cloudiness through Wednesday.
After some interesting weather across Acadiana Friday afternoon, a much nicer and quieter weather pattern is expected for this weekend.
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.
Don’t put away the umbrella just yet as we will still have the chance for a few passing showers today as some moisture gets wrapped around the upper level low as it pushes off to the east.
After a rough day with numerous strong to occasionally severe thunderstorms raked through Acadiana, the weather pattern will gradually become much more favorable into the weekend.
A good part of Acadiana remains under a Tornado and Flash Flood Watch through 7:00pm, although we think the threats will diminish by then.
The Storm Prediction Center has issued a Tornado Watch for all of Acadiana until 7 PM as a line of strong to severe storms is
