Showers and storms will be likely over the next few hours.
Severe weather still looks possible this evening and overnight, mostly north of I-10. Damaging winds and tornadoes will be possible between 7 PM – 4 AM. There will be a narrow area of 6-8″ of rain, but pinpointing that area is difficult. I think it will be closer to the Alexandria area, but it could set up just north of I-10.
We clear out tomorrow and it will be warm with highs in the low 80s. Sunday will be sunny with highs in the low 80s.
The Storm Prediction Center has elevated the risk outlook for severe weather in central and northern Acadiana. As of this morning, much of the area is now in the “Enhanced Risk” outlook. This is considered a Level 3 out of 5 for likelihood to see severe storms. Damaging winds are the primary threat but isolated tornadoes and/or large hail is possible too.
