A Flash Flood Watch continues for Iberville, Ascension, Livingston, Assumption, St. James, St. Tammany, southern Tangipahoa, St. John the Baptist, St. Charles and other coastal parishes in Southeast Louisiana until 1 PM Wednesday. An additional 1-2″ will be possible in these areas through midday.
Storms through the midday hours for areas mainly along and south of I-10/I-12 corridor before the cold front finally pushes further to the south. Storms will become more coastal by the afternoon. Some storms may be strong to severe and even cause flash flooding for areas south and east of Baton Rouge. Some storms may produce heavy rain, frequent lightning, gusty wind, and even small hail. The SPC has placed areas southeast of Baton Rouge under a Marginal Risk for severe weather today.
We could see some clearing this afternoon with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s.
How to Prepare: Be sure you have multiple ways to receive weather alerts. 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. Also, please avoid all flooded areas! We will have to monitor river levels, as well.
