After a very quick break in a rather active pattern the showers and storms are moving back across southern Louisiana. They will be out ahead of a warm front which will push through Acadiana Sunday evening. Showers will become more numerous and don't be surprised for a few storms to be thrown in the mix as well.
Monday will get off to a wet start and parts of Acadiana could see a few inches of rain, however, the strong storms will move through Monday afternoon. There is the potential for some of these storms to become severe as a cold front passes through after lunch.
The main threat will be along the coastal parishes and just east of Lafayette, with damaging winds being the main concern. Hail will also be possible at times and if conditions are just right a possible tornado.
The line of storms clear out quite quickly and by late evening Monday skies will start to clear, and some drier cooler air starts to filter in. Right now it seems as if we can be in for another quick cold snap, but a temperature forecast will become easier after the front passes on Monday.
