Friday marks final day of rain after a week of severe weather
BATON ROUGE - Early Friday morning, Baton Rouge skies are gray as a week-long series of storms reaches its much-anticipated conclusion.
WBRZ meteorologist Marisa Nuzzo says the heavy showers that resulted in flooded homes and roadways throughout the week will make a brief appearance Friday morning before heading west, towards Texas.
Meanwhile, traffic conditions in Baton Rouge and surrounding areas are relatively peaceful, as of 6:50 a.m., but a number of roadways remain impassable due to high water.
Three areas to avoid are listed below:
-Greenwell Springs is closed at the Comite River
-Old Perkins (La 427) is closed at Bayou Manchac
-Bluff Rd is closed from Bluff Oaks Ave to the I-10 overpass
A full list of road closures in Ascension Parish can be found here.
