Big weather changes for central Louisiana, thanks to an upper-level storm system and an attached strong cold front.
Temperatures dropped from the 80s Wednesday to the 40s Thursday morning behind a cold front. The dynamics of this change was able to tap a very moist atmosphere and the result was a significant rainfall event.
General amounts Wednesday through Thursday were 1-3 inches, with peak amounts exceeding four inches. The brunt of the heavy rain was felt in Vernon, Sabine, Grant, and Natchitoches Parishes. The top five amounts I collected were all from that area: Nantachie 4.82; Montgomery 4.50; Simpson 4.25; Anacoco 4.12; and Leesville 4.06. Some locations in Avoyelles, Evangeline, and St. Landry Parishes reported less than one inch of rain.
The sun returns fulltime Friday. Have a good day.
