The tail end of upper level disturbance that has been responsible for producing severe weather this weekend and early this week across the Plains States will edge toward Acadiana overnight through Wednesday.
This system will be much weaker locally but the risk of showers and a few strong storms will be possible in the area.
Late Tuesday afternoon strong to severe storms were indicated from Northeastern Texas into Northern Louisiana where a moderate risk of severe storms will be possible into the overnight hours.
This system will continue to weaken as it works its way farther southward into Acadiana but a few strong storms containing gusty winds and hail cannot be completely ruled out.
At this time, Acadiana is not hatched for the threat of organized severe weather, but watching the radar more closely, will certainly be a possibility overnight.
Best chance for storms locally will likely after midnight give or take a few hours with another round possible with daytime heating for our Wednesday afternoon. Tentative rain chances will likely be in the 60% range through Wednesday afternoon but should drop off to 20% or less for the rest of the week and into the weekend.
