Spring weather continues on Wednesday with little change in the overall weather pattern.

Winds remain gusty and out of the south which is helping drive in a warmer, muggier air mass into Acadiana.

Highs will get into the upper 70s on Wednesday and will likely return to the 80s by Thursday afternoon.

Skies will remain a mixture of sunshine and clouds for the next few days before clouds start to pile up ahead of our next storm system on Friday.

Severe weather is going to be possible Friday evening with a cold front moving through the region and destabilizing the atmosphere.

Currently it looks like Acadiana will be where the storms get going before moving northeastward into an environment that's slightly more favorable for supercell development.

That means that severe weather for our region will largely by very isolated, and since we're the area where storms are initiation it'll be difficult to pinpoint the exact areas that could see the stronger storms.

Damaging winds and isolated tornadoes will be the main issue but we won't be able to discount hail or heavy downpours.

The good news is that by Saturday this will have cleared out and sunshine will be able to return, although the sun may be brief with an unsettled pattern taking shape by Sunday.
