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.

Not only is the latest run a little sooner on the storms arriving, but also quicker with the storm departing.

As for rainfall totals, the latest model run stays in the general vicinity of up to 1-2″ possible across the area.

Although flooding should not be a major concern, the slight risk of severe weather is still a possibility with damaging winds the primary threat.

See previous article for full discussion, and details of the forecast beyond Saturday.
