Tuesday Night: Heavy rain and flash flooding risk tonight and Wednesday

Weather

A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for the entire area through Thursday morning. Additional rain totals are expected to be 3-7″, but locally higher amounts will be possible. Some areas could even pick up over 10″ of rain.

Tracking Nicholas: Nicholas is forecast to slowly move into Louisiana and become a remnant low Wednesday or Thursday. Some dry air may get pulled into the system which would cut rain coverage and the flood risk down a good bit. Some spots could pick up over 7″ of rain before this is all said and done.

Tonight: Moderate to heavy rain is expected, which could lead to flash flooding. Also, there could be a spin-up tornado or two. The Storm Prediction Center placed our area under a Marginal Risk (threat level 1 of 5) for tornadoes.

Wednesday: Periods of moderate to heavy rain could lead to flash flooding. The Weather Prediction Center has placed our area under a Moderate Risk for flash flooding. Rain coverage should taper a bit throughout the day.

Thursday: Scattered to numerous showers and storms at times. Highs will be in the 80s. 

Friday – Sunday: Scattered to numerous showers and storms are expected Friday and into the weekend thanks to remaining tropical moisture in place. Highs will be in the mid 80s. 

Tracking the Tropics: There are two areas to watch in the Atlantic Basin over the next couple of days, but there is plenty of time to watch these.
