Acadiana is bracing itself for potentially some strong storms and that can only mean one thing, school closures.

Acadiana can expect clouds to start rolling in later on Monday and prepare for the possibility of severe storms hitting the area on Tuesday. Right now the worst of the weather is expected to hit between 6-8 pm on Tuesday evening but that could always change.

KATC is projecting damaging winds and the possibility of tornadoes. They are also saying that hail and localized flooding will need to be monitored as well.
