Front brings the potential of severe weather

Posted at 5:29 AM, Feb 22, 2019

This week hasn’t been the most ideal one when it comes to the forecast, and Friday’s weather will be a fitting end to the work week.

A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect along and south of I-10 until 10:00 am with visibility dropping down to around a quarter mile of visibility.

The fog is going to stick around through at least the first half of the day, similar to the way it did on Thursday, which won’t make for a very pleasant forecast.

There’s quite a bit of moisture in the atmosphere so a few spotty showers can’t be ruled out although the chances remain scattered at best.

As the sun sets Friday the fog will start to roll back in and the abundance of moisture will keep the lows sitting in the low 70s.

It’ll take a front to break this stagnant pattern we’ve found ourselves stuck in and we will be getting just that on Saturday.

This front will swing through the region Saturday late afternoon/early evening and bringing with it a round of showers and thunderstorms.

The primary threat with these storms is going to be storms that produce strong winds and an isolated tornado or two can’t be ruled out.

This is a tough forecast to really nail down with everything happening in Acadiana this weekend, so the best course of action is to keep your plans fluid and stay on top of it with the KATC Weather App.
