It is no secret that the summer of 2023 has etched its scorching mark in the history books, as one of the hottest and driest summers on record here in Louisiana. With over a month's worth of triple-digit days, residents across the state are now left wondering if this searing heat is a precursor to an equally extreme winter.
By now you have probably heard the news, gumbo weather is on the way to Louisiana. Or so we thought. As much as we want to be excited and start getting our sweaters ready something tells us this might be too good to be true. Believe me, we desperately want this Louisiana summer to be far behind us but now all eyes are on Chief Meteorologist Rob Perillo after a Facebook post he made.
As severe weather passes through South Louisiana, photos and videos of the impact have circulated on social media. As the weather continues across the region, updates will be made to this story with more information throughout the day.
