Weak front could bring rain to Southwest Louisiana

Posted: Updated:

A weak cold front located over northern Louisiana is slowly moving toward Southwest Louisiana and this will mean a better chance of rain Thursday, and possibly Friday as well.

Showers and storms are beginning to develop ahead of the cold front and they are moving southeast.

Because storms are developing the National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for Allen, Beauregard, Evangeline, St. Landry and Vernon parishes. The watch will last until 9 p.m.

Any storms that develop could produce damaging winds in excess of 60 mph along with frequent lightning. The strongest storms are likely to stay well to our northeast across northeastern Louisiana as well as Mississippi. But a few isolated showers and storms are possible this afternoon here in Southwest Louisiana especially north of US 190.
