Showers and storms lasting through the day

Posted at 5:47 AM, Jan 02, 2020

Showers and thunderstorms are going to stick around through the entire day which will make for a very wet 24 hours, impacting both the morning and evening commute.

Rain totals are still on pace to average between 2-4" across Acadiana, but as long as it arrives slow and steady it'll give the ground a chance to soak a lot of it up which will minimize flooding concerns.

It still would be a good idea to keep an eye on those low lying areas that typically take on a lot of water, as well as some of the roadways that traditionally have problems with drainage.

As the afternoon continues and the day warms up we'll need to start looking out for the possibility of some isolated severe thunderstorms, these storms will include both damaging winds and a slim chance at producing an isolated tornado.

While the threat for severe weather looks a little greater to our east we'll be right on the boundary so the radars should certainly be watched later Thursday afternoon.

Light showers will continue through the rest of the night and even last into the first half of the day on Friday before finally pushing out to the east.

Clouds will stick around through the day on Friday before clearing out for a beautiful weekend.
