As the line of storms gets closer to Louisiana a Severe Thunderstorm WATCH has been issued for northern portions of Acadiana.
Evangeline, Allen, Beauregard, Avoyelles and Rapides Parishes are all included in the watch area that runs through 8:00 pm Thursday.
The main concern associated with these storms will be strong winds along with lightning, and the possibility of hail.
The main line will arrive Thursday evening between 6:00 and 11:00 pm, and should be clear of the area by early Friday morning.
Strongest storms will be forming to our northeast.
