Lafayette Weather – Severe Storms Possible This Afternoon

A significant severe weather threat is included in the Lafayette weather forecast for the afternoon. Gusty southerly breezes and intermittent sunshine have helped pushed temperature and humidity values higher during the early afternoon hours.

This warm moist air is going to interact with an old frontal boundary and an approaching low pressure system. This should spark off showers and thunderstorms for all of Acadiana as the afternoon progresses.

The Storms Prediction Center has severe thunderstorm watches posted for a good portion of Louisiana and neighboring states. There have also been severe thunderstorm warnings issued ahead of a squall line of thunderstorms that is moving to the southeast rather rapidly.

The forecast for the remainder of the afternoon and evening calls for calmer conditions but a chance of rain staying in the forecast for the next several days. The biggest threat of rain and storms should come mid-week followed by cooler temperatures for the week end.
