Louisiana faces an increased threat of severe storms on Tuesday

After a gray and very gumbo-style weekend of weather Across Louisiana this past Saturday and Sunday, today’s forecast is dawning much brighter. However, for residents of Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Morgan City and eastern parts of Acadiana, tomorrow may not be so calm and still.

the Storm Forecast Center has placed much of Louisiana at an increased risk of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes during the day Tuesday that will extend into Tuesday night. The communities most likely to experience severe storms include New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Morgan City, Houma, and parts of the Mississippi and Alabama Gulf Coasts.

Lafayette appears to be right on the dividing line between an increased risk of severe storms and a low risk of severe storms. But for the sake of argument the Spc has placed the Hub City under this mild risk forecast along with Lake Charles and much of Southeast Texas. Remember, just like the horseshoe, thunderstorms and severe weather are crowded.

The way of risk assessment from the Storm Forecast Center collapses, it appears the top tornado threat will extend east from the Lafayette area through Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Forecasters say there is an 18% chance of a tornado in that part of the state late into the day Tuesday. This is the part shaded yellow in the graphic above.

Much of the same area will also face a similar risk from damaging straight-line winds. In fact, the SPC puts the probability of damaging winds in tomorrow’s storms at 30%. The region’s greatest hail threat appears to be heading west from the Lafayette region toward Lake Charles and southeast Texas.



In addition to the strong winds, possible tornadoes and hail, there is also the potential for an excessive rainfall event. As you can see, the Weather Prediction Center covered the entire state with this threat on Tuesday. Basically, an excessive precipitation event occurs when precipitation falls at a rate greater than storm drains and drainage systems can handle. It usually results in short-lived road flooding and flash flooding in affected areas.

School officials across southern Louisiana are monitoring this unsettled weather situation. On Tuesday there may be changes in everyday school life during the day. Please download our station app so that you are always up to date, even if changes are necessary in everyday school life.

The good news is that if we weather Tuesday’s bumpy forecasts, we should have it a nice working week of the weather. Although after Tuesday’s storms it will be a few degrees cooler than what we are experiencing today.
