Wednesday's Wake-Up Weather: Wet and cool day ahead!

The NWS Storm Prediction Center has portions of the WAFB region under a slight risk for severe weather Thursday, with the greatest threat likely from the mid-morning into the early to mid afternoon.

Chesley says any storms that move through have the potential to become severe with high winds, heavy rains, hail and vivid lightning.

Spring is officially here, which means that severe weather may be on the horizon. "And we can not rule out the possibility of a tornado".

A very slow-moving line of storms will advance eastward out of central Texas and the Red River Valley of NE Texas and NW Louisiana and begin affecting northern parts of the viewing area of Vernon Parish by late-afternoon and into the evening. So make sure you're weather aware and connected no matter where you are.

The time line is between 7am and 3pm on Thursday. These will be sporadic in coverage through the day, with the heavier line of showers and storms staying off to the west, potentially causing flooding issues in the delta. Travis says it is especially risky to travel during flash flooding at night because it is hard to see where water may be covering the road. Given the timing of these storms many will be at work or school. There are a lot of extra details and meteorological information to learn about on his blog. We still have a FIRST ALERT out for Thursday, for potential flooding. It's FREE for Android and Apple devices, and it will will keep you informed while you're "on the go".
