Mother’s Day Severe Threat

The first half of your Mother’s Day weekend will feature sunshine and warm temperatures in the mid-80s. Things will begin to change on Sunday as a cold front approaches the region. Scattered thunderstorms along with the potential for severe weather will develop late Sunday. The Storm Prediction Center has placed all of Central Louisiana under a slight (level 2/5) risk for severe weather. Damaging wind gusts will be the primary threat, but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. If you plan on hosting Mother’s Day festivities be sure to have a severe plan in place just to be safe!
