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
