Flash Flood Watch in effect, heavy rain expected
The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for the viewing area, in effect until Monday afternoon.
Locally heavy rain is possible. Forecast rainfall totals are expected to reach 3-5” with locally heavier amounts of 6”+ possible.
A surface low has been impacting southeast Texas and will be bringing potentially heavy rainfall into southeast Louisiana later today and into Monday.
Even with the dry conditions, localized flash flooding is possible. Especially if we receive the rainfall all at once. Remember to avoid flooded roadways and to "Turn Around, Don’t Drown." Even a few inches of rushing water is enough to carry your vehicle.
