A front that's been making a mess as it crosses the country is expected to hit Acadiana midnight Sunday bringing strong storms with it.
The major concerns associated with the front will be strong damaging winds and the possibility for small to medium sized hail.
Although tornadoes are not expected, one or two isolated one's can not be ruled out. Although instability not quite high enough for a tornado outbreak the best chance for a small twister would be south east Acadiana.
Not much rain is expected with the system and because it will be moving so quickly only 0.25"-0.5" is anticipated across Acadiana.
The storms are being pushed by very cold air and temperatures will start to drop quickly after the front passes which will be a few hours after midnight, so around 2-3 o'clock Monday morning.
Winds will be picking up on Monday and there will be a a noticeable chill in the air as temperatures will be a good 20-30 degrees below what we were seeing this weekend.
Partial clearing on Monday won't last long as clouds and rain looks to be building back on Tuesday.
The pattern has been very unsettled and constantly evolving so make sure to stay tuned to KATC for the latest forecast details.
