The severe weather threat will remain for the rest of Friday evening as Acadiana braces for a line of storms to arrive just before midnight Friday.
Latest model runs indicate that there will be an increase in low level shear meaning an increased chance for isolated tornadoes through central and southern Louisiana.
As has been evident Friday afternoon the atmosphere has been incredibly unstable and will remain that way until the front passes.
A severe thunderstorm Friday evening in Avoyelles Parish is a good indicator on what we can expect for the rest of the evening.
Isolated storms moving out ahead of the front will favor the potential for some rotation an these storms will be watched for isolated tornadoes.
Storms moving in along the frontal boundary will not be as favorable for tornado formation but will be packing strong straight line winds and the potential for large hail.
This line looks to impact Acadiana roughly around 11:00 pm Friday, but again isolated storms through out the evening will be watched closely as well.
Heavy downpours will be associated with almost all storms and frequent deadly lightning should not be underestimated.
If you do find yourself in the path of a warned/strong storm please take the proper precautions and make sure you stay indoors and out of harms way.
