Severe Weather Update March 17, 2022 - 6 AM

Click HERE and HERE for an update concerning the severe weather threat for tomorrow night into Friday.

Changes from the previous update:

  • None


WHAT:  SLIGHT RISK of Severe Weather

WHEN: After midnight tonight through Friday morning

WHERE: All of southeast Louisiana and southern Mississippi for overnight hours, then along and east of a line from Thibodaux to Poplarville for Friday morning after sunrise.


  • We are confident that there will be thunderstorms across the area and that a few will be strong to severe.  We expect hail to be a threat but have less confidence on whether wind or tornadoes will be the secondary threat.


The main threats associated with any severe storms will be:


  • Wind gusts greater than 60 mph will be possible

Large Hail:

  • Large hail over one inch in diameter will be possible (greatest risk)


  • Conditional on storm development; so a few tornadoes can not be ruled out.


  • In addition to the severe weather threat, rainfall of 1 to 2 inches is forecast with locally higher amounts possible.
