A stalled boundary will move southward this afternoon. It could lead to spotty showers through early Thursday.
A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 1 p.m., but the heavy rain threat is over for the Baton Rouge metro. Pockets of heavy rain could lead to higher rain totals locally.
According to a radar estimate, downtown Baton Rouge received about 1.5 inches while areas of New Orleans saw less than an inch. The highest totals were along a band of rain from New Iberia to Donaldsonville. The radar estimates over six inches of rain in some areas.
Still, we remain under a marginal risk for excessive rainfall. This likely will be dropped in the next few hours.
Tomorrow is forecast to be dry with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Highs will only be in the mid to upper 70s. We’ll stay dry through Saturday, but there is the chance for spotty showers Sunday evening. Monday and Tuesday will be the next chances for showers and storms. Over the next seven days, we’re looking at less than two inches, but heavy rain could lead to higher amounts.
