Highs in the low 80s. Overnight, mostly cloudy. It appears thunderstorms will hold off until well after midnight, but our northwestern counties could see thunderstorm activity before dawn on Saturday. Showers and thunderstorms are likely to be ongoing through the early morning hours Saturday, lasting through the early afternoon.
We're still under an *enhanced* risk, and that has been expanded eastward to include Ouachita Parish.
In addition to the risk of strong winds, periods of very heavy rain will be likely with the line of storms and rain totals of one inch are expected across most of the area with isolated amounts as high as 2 inches possible. On Saturday, the storms will continue to shift east with the highest possibility of severe weather being along the Gulf Coast and in Alabama.
The rain will last through Sunday morning, coming to an end 5 AM to 8 AM across the Shoals, then at 7 AM to 10 AM around I-65 and I-565, and around 10 AM to 1 PM around Sand Mountain.
By Sunday morning, most of us in Acadiana will see temperatures dropping into the mid-40s, with wind chills threatening the upper 30s!
Thursday's strong southerly flow will pump even warmer air into the region with highs soaring into the 70s. Highs will only be in the 60s and 70s with a strong northwest winds behind a front.
Chief Meteorologist Grant Dade said because of this a wind advisory has been issued for much of the area. Widespread flash flooding is not expected, but localized flash flooding in poor drainage areas is possible. The main event will be overnight Friday into Saturday, as that is when the greatest potential will be. Winds will be out of the east at 10-20 miles per hour.
The low associated with this front gets stuck up in the High Plains this weekend, wrapping around clouds, chilly 40's and 50's and flurry chances. Lows in 60s. Highs around 82. Daytime highs on Saturday will range between 30 to 31 degrees, central Taiwan will see a high of 32 degrees, and southern Taiwan will see the highs range between 31 and 33 degrees. In fact, the heaviest rain falls through the day Sunday.
COOLER FOR A BIT: A bit of sunshine returns for Tuesday, but breezy northwesterly winds keep temperatures well-below average.
