Flash Flood Watch remains in effect

Weather

Stay weather aware...

The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for all of the BRProud areas in Southeast Louisiana and Southeast Mississippi through Thursday evening.

We expect a few more rounds of showers and storms through Thursday night. Heavy rain may lead to localized flash flooding. An additional 1-2″ of rain will be possible for most areas. Some spots may see rain totals exceeding 3″. Keep in mind, if you are caught under a strong thunderstorm you can double or triple these amounts!

The Weather Prediction Center has placed our area under a Marginal (threat level 1 out of 4) for flooding Thursday – low lying areas and areas prone to flooding are most vulnerable. Avoid all flooded areas!

The Storm Prediction Center has placed our area under a Marginal Risk (threat level 1 out of 5) for severe weather Thursday and Thursday night. The threat would be for damaging winds.

Any storm that develop will have the potential to produce gusty wind, heavy rain, frequent lightning.

How to Prepare: Be sure you have multiple ways to receive weather alerts for the next few days. Brush up on your severe weather safety plan – know where your safe place is and be sure it is ready for you, your family, and your pets.
