Next round promises stronger storms
LAFAYETTE, LA (KADN) — After a rainy Monday night, another round of thunderstorms looks to bring stronger storms to Louisiana on Thursday.
A cold front moving over the state brought almost an inch and a half of rain to Baton Rouge overnight. It, in turn, made way for a beautiful Tuesday and Wednesday forecast. Another front, however, is predicted to approach south Louisiana by Thursday evening with the possibilites of severe weather.
The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma has placed east Texas, southern Arkansas, western Mississippi and the entire state of Louisiana under a "slight" risk of severe weather. Right now, heavy rain and gusty winds will be the primary threats, but tornadoes cannot be ruled out.
