After a stormy night, rains will continue to push eastward and away from the region. The cold front is settling over the Gulf of Mexico and cooler air is pushing in. Clouds will hang on for a good part of the day with temperatures only reaching the upper 60s and lower 70s. Winds will be brisk out of the northeast, occasionally gusting to over 20 mph.
Skies will clear into the evening hours. Overnight temperatures will drop into the lower 50s. We can expect a little sunshine early in the day Saturday, with clouds gradually moving back in. Low pressure will come in from the west, dragging our front back to the north as a warm front. It gets muggy during the afternoon and some showers and storms will develop.
Easter Sunday, those rains and storms will continue with severe weather likely. The Storm Prediction Center puts most of Acadiana in the Enhanced and Moderate risk category for severe weather. This is Level 3 and 4.
This past evening we were only in the Level 1 Marginal and we had some significant storms. Be on the lookout from late afternoon Saturday all the way through Sunday.
After the front passes through on Sunday evening, we can expect clearing skies and beautiful weather for most of next week. Temperatures will be on the cool side!
