It has been a busy day in the Weather Lab Thursday as a few severe storms moved their way through Acadiana. Storms that formed just north of I-10 Thursday afternoon quickly moved south and produced some strong winds and small hail through out south Louisiana.
Another round of storms are expected to move through later Thursday night with a handful of the storms hanging around into the early morning hours of Friday. There is a slight chance some of these storms will be severe with strong winds and small hail the main concern.
Through out Friday shower chances will slowly diminish, leaving behind only slim chances for isolated showers in the afternoon. The rest of the weekend is looking great with high pressure taking charge of the weather which means mostly sunny skies through the weekend.
As far as the tropics we can mark it down that on Thursday, 4:40 p.m. CDT Tropical Storm Andrea became the first tropical system to make hit the coast for the 2013 hurricane season. Andrea made landfall just south of Steinhatchee, Florida with sustained winds of 65 mph. The forecast for Andrea remains the same with a dash up the Atlantic coast before loosing status as a tropical system on Saturday.
