If you live in Acadiana you have probably already been shaken from your slumber by a crash of thunder or the flash of lightning through the window.

A large area of heavy rain with embedded heavy thunderstorms is currently pushing through South Louisiana and the potential for severe weather will exist until later this morning. The current National Weather Service Radar out of Lake Charles will show you where the heaviest activity is located. You can also keep up with mother nature using KATC TV 3's Power Doppler 3000. You will also find Dave Baker's forecast for the upcoming Easter weekend there as well.
