Severe Weather Threat For South Louisiana Tuesday


The focus is once again on south Louisiana for a potential several weather threat on Tuesday that includes the possibility of tornadoes.

"Tuesday is the storm day, and these storms will bring a severe weather risk," says Fox 8 meteorologist Zach Fradella. "The timing brings the worst of the weather into Southeast Louisiana and Southern Mississippi during the afternoon and evening hours. This line of weather, along with any storms forming ahead of the line, will bring a chance for tornadoes, hail and damaging winds. Outside of the severe risk, there will be periods of heavy rainfall as the lines progress through our area. The Storm Prediction Center has outlined much of the area in a Level 3 or 4 out of 5 which is an Enhanced or Moderate risk."

Residents are being urged to use the quiet weather on Monday to prepare. Those who live in mobile homes are urged to remain alert as the severe weather moves through.

"This rough weather Tuesday moves out of here by the nighttime hours, leaving us another stretch of some beautiful conditions," says Fradella. "Late week looks sunny and cool, with highs falling back into the 60s and lows in the 40s."
