A well advertised front is moving across Acadiana with heavy showers and gusty winds creeping across the region early Saturday morning.

As the front passes expect frequent lightning along with the winds and the rain, and while there’s an outside chance for some severe weather that chance still exists.

So far there’s been little culture or history of this system producing any severe weather with the exception of a single cell in the early morning hours of Saturday in Alexandria.

The front is expected to move through a little after sunrise and should be east of Acadiana by lunch time and into eastern parts of the state.

Once the front passes the winds will kick up and the temperatures will start to drop almost immediately and continue to fall through the remainder of the day.

Eventually we will bottom out in the low 30s Saturday night into Sunday morning, this is the first of a string of storms that will impact Acadiana this week so make sure you stay tuned for the latest forecast details.
