As of 2am the only severe weather watches or warnings were well to the north and east of the 97.3 The Dawg listening area.This storm system should bring some gusty winds, frequent lightning and some heavy downpours to the area as it moves through.
A threat of storms late Tuesday should yield to beautiful weather for weekend parades throughout Acadiana. The warm temperatures of Sunday should stick around one more day and then things will begin to change.
Schools have been closed, roads have been closed, sandbags have been filled and plans have been changed by many people in South Louisiana. The reason for all this disruption? Heavy rain that just won't seem to go away.
Winter in Louisiana is not a snow white wonderland. It is more like a squishy brown mess of dead grass, leaves and mud. It looks like we'll be getting more of the mud over the next few days as another storm system is expected to dump from 3-6 inches of rainfall on the area between midday Tuesday and early Thursday morning.
We advise parents to send kids to school with a jacket even though the temperature at bell time this morning might not be that cold. Falling temperatures and gusty North winds will make this afternoon quite chilly across the region.
