A Wet Weekend Ahead, Flooding Possible

Friday, December 26, 2014 - 8:37pm

FLOOD WATCH issued Friday night - Sunday afternoon for the entire area. 2-4 inches of rain likely, with locally higher amounts possible.

A slow moving weather system arrives in South Louisiana late tonight and is expected to hang around through most of the weekend. Expect a few showers before midnight tonight, followed by widespread showers and thunderstorms by Saturday morning. The rain will continue until Sunday afternoon/evening. 1-4 inches of rain is likely across the area, with some storms dumping locally higher amounts. There is also the potential for a few strong thunderstorms. The ground is already saturated from the storms earlier this week, so flooding will be possible in many areas. -Meteorologist Rachael Penton
