If you live in Woodville, Fort Adam, the Felicianas or Livingston Parish, you were likely woken this morning to claps of thunder. Some intense thunderstorms rolled through this morning at 5am providing you with an unwelcome wake-up call. Thankfully, there was no severe weather. On the other hand, there is still afternoon potential for thunderstorms, so we're not done.
TODAY: Highs in the lower 90s before afternoon showers pop up and cool things down under a deluge of thunderstorm rain. Showers this afternoon will concentrate more on the Southern side of South Louisiana, but showers are possible and likely across all of our region this afternoon.
TONIGHT: Lows in the lower 70s and some clouds linger as showers diminish. Though a thunderstorm complex that looks to drift South of Lake Charles could throw off enough energy to spark some overnight thunderstorms, generally around 3-4am. But again, nothing severe is likely.
THIS WEEKEND: Shower and thunderstorm potential will diminish as a stationary front sinks into the Gulf on Friday afternoon through Saturday morning; however, the threat for afternoon showers and thunderstorms still exists with daytime temperature reaching the low 90s and plenty of humidity. Overnight lows will hug the upper 60s and lower 70s into early next week.
