Threat of Severe Weather Returns Friday

The forecast is rather interesting for the end of the work week with two separate systems sparking showers across Acadiana. 

The first will impact south Louisiana Thursday night and early Friday morning with a round of showers and storms expected. 

Storms to the west through the Lake Charles area have a better chance of becoming severe, although the most robust dynamics sits in eastern Texas. 

Still some of the storms could be capable of producing some small hail and some gusty winds around Acadiana. 

The wet weather takes a very quick break with the action clearing up briefly Friday morning and early afternoon. 

This is when the second system moves in late Friday afternoon/evening, and will be slightly stronger then what we experience on Thursday. 

The folks over at the Storm Prediction Center have listed Acadiana as having a slight risk for severe storms late in the day on Friday. 

Biggest concern on Friday will be hail along with damaging winds, and with slightly better dynamics an isolated tornado will be possible. 

Temperatures will be much warmer with highs Friday in the low 80s and lows that stay in the upper 60s. 

All this clears out for the weekend, however, and Saturday and Sunday look very pleasant.
