Severe threat over for the day

Posted at 6:23 AM, Apr 07, 2018

Strong storms woke many of us up early Saturday morning as a violent front pushed some severe storms through the area, which has since been able to move south of Acadiana. 

This will set up a unique forecast for April here in south Louisiana as some very chilly air from the north will filter in which will mean temperatures are falling through the day. 

Eventually the lows will bottom out in the low 40s by early Sunday morning which is well below our seasonal average, and serving as a reminder we haven’t reached summer just yet. 

As high pressure rushes in through the rest of the day on Saturday winds will remain strong and gusty out of the north around 15-20 mph with gusts reaching as high as 25-30 mph. 

Mostly cloudy skies will remain for the rest of the day with an occasional shower drifting through Acadiana, although the heavy downpours are over for the rest of the day. 

Now that the front has passed the severe weather threat is gone for the rest of the weekend, Eric will have more on your forecast coming Saturday evening on KATC.
