Strong Storms Ready to Move Through Saturday Night

Clouds are back for the start of the weekend with a round of showers and thunderstorms on the way for late Saturday night into early Sunday morning. 

A frontal boundary that pushes out of Texas Saturday afternoon will be responsible for the inclement weather, and the Storm Prediction Center has put Acadiana in a slight risk for severe weather. 

The risk for severe weather remains on the low side, but some of the storms may be worth keeping an eye on. 

Avoyelles Parish and areas to the north will run the greatest risk to see the severe weather, but a few discreet cells through the rest of Acadiana can't be ruled out. 

Main concern with this system will be damaging winds along with heavy downpours, the threat for hail will be minimal in Acadiana much greater through west Louisiana, and isolated tornadoes although unlikely are possible. 

Timing of the event has caused a few problems but it looks like everything will get started Saturday evening and continuing through the early morning hours of Sunday. 

Stick with KATC on-air and on-line for all the latest forecast details and make sure you stay one step ahead of the weather.
