Today: More rain is expected today. Like yesterday, it could arrive in the morning. Isolated storms are possible in the morning before the main line of rain arrives mid-morning. Mid-late morning a strong line of thunderstorms will develop to our west and push through the area into the afternoon. Some heavy downpours are possible with storm system. There is a SLIGHT (2/4) RISK for flooding in isolated areas due to the storms today. Another round of numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected in the afternoon to evening hours. A FLASH FLOOD WATCH has also been issued for the morning into the evening for our northern parishes and our Mississippi counties. 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 streams. Highs will be in the mid-80s thanks to an early arrival of the rain. Overnight a few isolated showers are possible with lows in the mid-70s. 

Thursday: Thursday will be a repeat of yesterday and today. Rain coverage remains around 80% with heavy rain leading to possible isolated flood concerns. There is a MARGINAL (¼) RISK for this. Highs will again be limited into the mid-80s. 

Friday: The rain coverage will drop to 60% on Thursday. Still expect some heavy downpours leading to isolated flood concerns. There is a MARGINAL (¼) RISK for this. Highs will be able to warm into the upper-80s thanks to a slightly lower coverage in rain. 

Saturday-Sunday: Rain coverage increases again to around 70% with highs in the upper-80s. 

Monday-Tuesday: The widespread heavy rain potential is lower as we near the end of the week. Storms become more scattered with highs warmer near 90. 

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 expected to track across over the Winward Islands and into the Caribbean Sea over the next several days. The second tropical wave is beginning to move 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.
