Severe storms are pushing through the heart of Acadiana this morning. That means the Lafayette weather forecast for the start of the weekend is going to be quite stormy. The current radar scan shows where the heaviest activity is currently located.

Severe thunderstorm warningshave been posted for many parishes in the area and a severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for a good portion of the area as well.

Dave Baker and the KATC TV 3 Storm team anticipate more showers and thunderstorms through out the day today with a good chance of more rain on  Saturday. Rain chances should diminish with the passage of a cold front on Sunday.
