The clouds have started to move in already this Monday, a sign of a stormy pattern expected for the middle of the work week.

While there's still some details that need to be ironed out, and this is by no means the final say in the forecast, it's still worth a look to see what we can expect on Wednesday.

Acadiana has been listed as a "Marginal Risk" for severe weather on Wednesday by the Storm Prediction Center which means that severe chances will be slim and isolated but the weather should still be monitored.

Those who are traveling east on Wednesday should take not that the threat for severe weather does increase in coastal Mississippi, Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle, that area currently listed as a "Slight Risk".

Exact timing of this event is still up in the air, the best guess for the arrival of the storms will be mid morning to mid afternoon on Wednesday.

The main threats with this system will be damaging winds, but an isolated tornado can't be ruled out when these storms move through the region.

This will be a slightly different set up then the last round of severe weather as it looks like it'll be little clusters of thunderstorms producing the storms as opposed to a solid line of storms.

In the meantime there will be noticeable increase in clouds over the next few days and winds will stay steady out of the south.
