Rounds of heavy rain and storms Sunday

Rounds of heavy rain and storms Sundayā€¯

I'm not expecting any organized severe weather Tuesday night as the storms will be more elevated in nature; however, there could be some gusty winds and loud rumbles in association with any storms that materialize.

Thunderstorms are also possible going into the week with potential strong storms on Wednesday (Feb. 28).

For Sunday morning the Storm Prediction Center has all of Acadiana under a marginal risk (5%) for a couple storms to turn severe with damaging wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour and the very slim chance of a quick spin up tornado.

A trough of low pressure - think storm system - begins to have a greater influence on our local forecast later Sunday, with a chance of rain peaking Monday. Rain doesn't return to the forecast until Wednesday afternoon.

One-half to three-quarters of an inch of rain could fall overnight, and it is likely to keep raining steadily until around noon on Sunday, the federal forecasters say.

The main issue with this second wave of rain is most of Acadiana will receive an additional 1-3 inches of rain on top the earlier showers bring totals for the day into the 2-5 inch range which could lead to flooding.

As we move into the month of March, a notable change in the overall weather pattern is expected to take place that will ultimately bring temperatures down closer to where they should be at this time of year.

Unfortunately another low looks to develop near the ArkLaTex Tuesday afternoon which could produce more scattered showers and a few storms across Acadiana.

The rain will start around 6:00pm but the heavy rain and possible thunderstorms won't happen until later in the evening.

Temperature lows for Sunday will settle in the high 30s in some sections of the state but will mostly remain in the 40s.
