Important Weather Dates 2021
So just like the title states, this blog post will be about important dates in 2021 in relation to weather events here in Acadiana. This post will be updated as things happen so it is a WIP.
- January 6, 2021: An EF-1 Tornado destroyed mobile homes in the village of Parks in St. Martin Parish. No injuries or deaths were reported.
- February 15-17, 2021: Winter Storm brings Freezing Rain, Sleet, and even some light Snow to Acadiana. Highs for most stay under freezing the entire day. Another winter storm brings freezing rain to St. Landry and Evangeline parishes just days after the previous storm.
- February 16, 2021: Lows in the teens for most across Acadiana are the coldest temperatures in decades for the region. Lafayette hit a low of 16 on this day.
