Evening forecast for Wednesday, April 10

Weather

WEST MONROE, La. — (4/10/2019) After a stretch of unseasonably warm temperatures, a cold front will bring scattered rain and a slight cooldown for Friday. However, the more pressing matter is the potential for severe thunderstorms on Saturday.

Tomorrow’s front could trigger scattered rain as it moves through, but significant impacts are not expected. Most of Friday is also expected to be quiet.

Ingredients appear to be falling into place for a significant severe weather threat on Saturday. A powerful upper-level storm system will move into the region on Saturday afternoon. Damaging winds, hail, tornadoes, and heavy rainfall are all expected.

This could be a significant, regional severe weather outbreak.

Residents are urged to stay up to date on the forecast, and adjust outdoor activities as needed as we move closer to Saturday.
