There’s a possibility of strong storms on Saturday as a low pressure system is set to move through the state and impact south Louisiana from Lafayette to Baton Rouge to New Orleans.
However, just how strong the storms could be is still being monitored by meteorologists at the National Weather Service.
“There’s a potential for strong to serious storms Saturday to Saturday night,” said Andrew Ansorge, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. “As we get closer, we’ll get a better idea.”
Although south Louisiana is very dry right now, more moisture will likely start arriving by Friday just as a low pressure system starts moving across Texas. Computer models are getting closer to agreeing on what that will mean for Louisiana, Ansorge said, and more will be known later this week.
Currently, the forecast is for a 70 percent chance of thunderstorms on Saturday increasing to an 80 percent chance by Saturday night with rain likely to continue into Sunday.
Another strong cold front is expected to come through the area Monday, according to the National Weather Service.
