Heads up! Localized heavy rain risk Monday-Tuesday across south Louisiana. Additional 1-3” of rainfall likely. Localized 5+” amounts. With saturated soils, be aware of localized street flooding!

Remember it's very possible the hot spots here may not be exactly the same area tomorrow. The important thing to take away from this, is there is expected to be scattered hotspots in Acadiana tomorrow. We will have to watch the radar and see where that occurs tomorrow.

With an upper level disturbance near Acadiana and deep tropical moisture, 2-5” of rain will be possible across some areas over the next 48 hours. The best chance will be Monday. This is the Futuretrack rainfall forecast through Tuesday evening.

Remember talking about this the other day? While not likely to develop into anything bonafide tropical, a mid-upper level low has developed across south Louisiana. With leftover deep tropical moisture from #Hanna, localized heavy rainfall likely today-Tuesday.

Another day of scattered showers across Acadiana.

From KLFY Meteorologist Trevor Sonnier: "BREAKING: Hurricane Hanna close to making landfall on the south Texas coast as a powerful Category 1 storm, packing winds of 90 mph. This makes it just shy of Category 2 intensity. Visible satellite imagery shows a distinct eye that cleared out this morning."

Our Story

This page was started in August 2011, after I decided I would try and help out with some of the questions that are being asked to many of the TV meteorologist on social media. I do not have a degree in Atmospheric Science or Meteorology, but I did attend two semesters at ULM for that area of study. I am now an advanced trained storm spotter for the National Weather Service. When this page was first started, I was the only one posting updates. A few years ago, I decided to form a spotter group across Acadiana, and bring in more trained spotters to help run the page and to help assist the National Weather Service during severe weather events. My vision for this page is to be an additional source of weather information on a social media platform. We do often give advise, but you should always follow any information from the degreed meteorologist or National Weather Service first. I enjoy spending my time on this page and keeping my weather passion alive.

Thanks
