Hopefully everyone was able to take advantage of the nice weather early Saturday for their Mardi Gras celebrations as the forecast looks to get significantly more unsettled.
Clouds will be moving in through the day on Sunday with showers and storms arriving late overnight Sunday into Monday.
As the moisture continues to rise across Acadiana some of the storms have the potential to be very strong and possibly even severe criteria.
The main concern is going to be gusty, damaging winds and small to medium sized hail, however, an isolated tornado or two can not be ruled out.
Southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana seem to have the greatest potential for the stronger storms, but there is still enough model uncertainty that Acadiana residents will want to pay attention to the weather.
It looks like the main round of storms will arrive close to midnight Sunday into Monday with storms lasting for several hours.
Behind this storm system will be cold air that filters in for Lundi and Mardi Gras with temperatures close to freezing Fat Tuesday morning.
