FLASH FLOOD WATCH FOR ALL OF SE LOUISIANA FROM NOW - SATURDAY 7AM. AROUND 7-10" WITH HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE
There is a High Risk for flooding throughout the day on both sides of the lake. The area of low pressure is located over South Mississippi and it is slowly moving to the west. We will continue to see bands of heavy rain and storms wrap around it all day. Additional rainfall totals could be around 4-6"+ today. This would cause more flooding issues on the Northshore and Southshore. Watch for rapidly rising streams, creeks, ditches and other low-lying areas. High temperatures will only be around 80.
More heavy rain is expected tonight on both sides of the lake as the low moves to the west of us. Again, flooding is likely! Lows will be in the 70s.
The low will continue to slowly move to the west this weekend, and we will gradually see the chance for rain go down to 60% on Saturday and 50% on Sunday. However, any rain that does fall will be very heavy. Highs will be in the upper 80s to around 90 each day.
