"The entire state will be susceptible to damaging winds, what we call straight line winds, as well as hail and tornadoes."
Keim says the risk of damaging winds, hail, and tornadoes will persist throughout the day as the front moves across the state. He says this is typical winter weather for Louisiana. Keim says we will get some rain, but you shouldn't expect a gully-washer.
"Rain potential is somewhere between a half-inch and an inch-and-a-half."
He says the front should move out of the state by Friday. Keim says the front will leave us with a nice weekend ahead, but it will be chilly.
"Pretty much everywhere north of the I-10/I-12 corridor are very likely to see freezes on both Saturday and Sunday mornings, so be prepared for that. Take care of your pets and plants."
