Lafayette Weather- Stormy Start To Tuesday

NWS Radar 2:45am
National Weather Service Radar

An advancing cold front pushing into warm moist air over South Louisiana is expected to fire up some significant thunderstorms this morning. While the potential for a large outbreak of severe weather is minimal there will be some strong storms moving through the Acadiana area early this morning.

As of 2:45 this morning the strongest storms were part of a large rain shield that extended from Natchez Mississippi to just east of Lake Charles. This area of rain with embedded heavy thunderstorms was moving to the east at 20 mph. You can view the latest radar scan here.

At this rate the bulk of the heavier rain and storms should clear most of Acadiana by 8am. We can expect some rumbles of thunder, flashes of lightning and some brief heavy downpours over the next few hours.

After this weather system passes the shower activity should end by noon. A gusty westerly wind and falling temperatures will make a jacket a good idea for those venturing out later today. The rest of the work week looks to be nice until our next chance of showers late in the day on Thursday.
