The threat of severe weather will return to Acadiana Wednesday night as a robust cold front pushes its way across the region.
Strong southerly winds over the passed few days have filled the atmosphere with plenty of moisture, to fuel the storms moving through on Wednesday. Scattered showers will be possible out ahead of the front during the day, but conditions will deteriorate Wednesday night.
During the day Wednesday winds will be extremely blustery and gusty, particularly in the offshore areas. As a result a Small Craft Advisory is in effect through Wednesday.
The best chance to see the stronger storms will be between a window of 8:00 pm Wednesday until the ealry hours of Thursday morning.
The main threat from these storms are going to be damaging winds and the chance for hail as well. The threat for isolated tornadoes will be present, but it does look like better chances for tornadoes will be just north of Louisiana.
