Traffic was backed up most of the day on Interstate 10 eastbound due to inclement weather Saturday morning, according to DOTD.

Showers came through Baton Rouge starting around 9 a.m. causing the initial delays. The traffic then continued well into the afternoon with cars and trucks backed up to the LA 415/Lobdell exit.

An accident near College Drive added to the congestion when lanes were closed.  That incident was cleared by 3 p.m.

WBRZ News2 Meteorologist Robert Gauthreaux said that storms will diminish Saturday night into the evening hours. More rain is expected on Sunday.
