Today: Friday will be a repeat of the last couple of days. Rain coverage remains around 80% with heavy rain leading to possible isolated flood concerns. The coverage will remain isolated in the morning before increasing in the afternoon. A FLASH FLOOD WATCH has also been issued for the morning into the evening for Baton Rouge and areas north and east of Baton Rouge. Potential rainfall rates of 2-4 in/hr will likely lead to flood concerns in areas where the soil is very wet, which is most places in our region, given the rain over the last several days. Areas to watch for concern include Low-lying, flood-prone areas, urban areas, rivers, creeks and streamsThere is a MARGINAL (¼) RISK for this. Highs will be limited into the mid-80s. 

Saturday-Sunday: Rain coverage remains pretty high this week, with heavy rain potential remaining a concern. Highs will be in the mid-upper 80s. 

Next Week: Rinse & repeat! Wet weather sticks with us next week. The rain still has the potential be heavy at times due to excessive moisture staying in place over the region. Highs will be in the upper-80s to 90 degrees. 

Tracking the Tropics: There are two tropical waves to watch in the Atlantic. Both have a low 20% chance of developing into a tropical depression or tropical storm in the next 5 days. The first tropical wave is in the Caribbean Sea and tracking due west. We’ll need to watch this closely in the coming week. The second tropical wave is moving off of the West coast of Africa heading due west. This is at least 2 weeks away from the United States, if it is to become a concern.
