Lafayette Weather – Wet Weekend, Severe Storms Possible

Friday afternoon’s blue skies and cool breezes were a welcome sight after a very storm Friday morning. It looks as if that break was merely the calm between the storms. Mother Nature is in her transitional period.

That means that seasonal battle between the cool breezes of winter and the sticky heat of summer are about to erupt right on top of us.

Friday a cold front pushed through the area with a squall line of severe thunderstorms. Most of Acadiana was under a watch or warning at sometime during the morning hours. Some of the storms knocked down trees and lightning is suspected in a house fire that occurred in Lafayette. This morning skies are cloudy and things should remain fairly calm at least until this afternoon.

That front has stalled in the northern Gulf of Mexico and is now slowly starting to retreat to the north as a warm front. A surface low pressure system is expected to form along the frontal boundary off the coast of southeast Texas. This will be the catalyst for showers and thunderstorms to intensify and move into the area after lunchtime.

The forecast calls for a good chance of rain and a severe weather threat beginning late this afternoon but more likely on Sunday. Sunday appears to be a total washout with almost all of the forecast area receiving rain.
