Highs tomorrow will be in the mid to upper 70s with a few showers possible. We will have a threat for severe Wednesday. The chance is low, and it really depends on how much instability moves inland. The threat is a 2 out of 5 with 5 being the highest risk. 1-3″ of rain will be possible. Cooler and drier air returns Thursday.
Scattered rain becomes more likely on Tuesday with a very low threat for severe weather. All attention will be on Wednesday as heavy showers and storms look widespread and likely for Acadiana. As of this morning, the Storm Prediction Center has most of Acadiana outlined in their “Slight Risk” for severe weather for Wednesday. This risk level may increase as we get closer to Wednesday as the dynamics in the atmosphere could support super cellular storms. All modes of severe weather are possible like damaging winds, tornadoes, and large hail. Approximate timing for thunderstorm activity is late in the morning and throughout the afternoon.
