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.

Breezy and cooler with a few passing showers

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.

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!

Clearing skies but still windy Sunday

After a cloudy Saturday it is back to the sunshine on Sunday but it will be much cooler as temperatures will struggle to reach the upper 60s for highs.

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.

Spring Saturday…Winter Sunday

Acadiana will get to experience two seasons this weekend with warm spring conditions Saturday yielding to a more January-like feel Sunday thanks to a cold front that arrives Saturday evening.

Nice finish to week, front arrives Saturday night

Acadiana will enjoy a couple of more nice spring days, albeit with more clouds, but the pattern will turn toward more unsettled, and rather cool, midway through the weekend into Sunday.

Nice Friday, mild with scattered showers Saturday, breezy/cooler Sunday

Acadiana stayed on a nice seasonable winter roll Thursday as temperatures reached the upper 50s to 60 degrees in a few spots under mostly sunny skies. More of the same is expected to tomorrow, but there will probably be more high clouds mixing with the sun from time to time.

Sunshine this weekend! Believe it!

After a gloomy period going back to Christmas, much of Acadiana got to see sunshine Friday, and there’s plenty more on the way for a good part of the weekend.

Warming up the next several days

High pressure will continue to be in place out in the Gulf creating more sun filled days for Acadiana Sunday through Tuesday.

But as the high slides to the east a little and provides us a WSW flow temperatures will be warming up as highs will climb into the low to mid 80s and overnight lows will bottom out around the lower 60s.

Cool start, warm finish to a sunny weekend

The forecast for Acadiana this weekend is simply outstanding and sunny with a fresh and cool start Saturday morning, finishing up with temperatures in the balmy low to mid 80s Sunday afternoon.
