More rain expected Sunday, flooding possible


New Orleans, La.- Another rainy day is expected around the area Sunday and forecasters are keeping an eye on some river levels.

Mid-morning through late afternoon will hold most of the rainfall Sunday keeping temperatures in the low 80s due to little sun and cloud cover with the high moisture content keeping lows in 70s. 

"After a very rainy Saturday as a slow moving cold front approached the area, even more rain is expected Sunday," says Fox 8 Meteorologist Nicondra Norwood, "An upper level low that developed over west Texas will push east and help move a surface low developing along the coast in our direction." 

Gulf moisture is already firmly in place and the remnants of a Pacific tropical system are also added to the mix providing plenty of fuel for storms. 

Areas near the Bogue Falaya River in St. Tammany Parish are under a Flood Warning until Tuesday morning.

The National Weather Service reports that the Bogue Falaya River will continue to rise Sunday afternoon and it is expected to fall below flood stage by Tuesday morning.

Some areas on the East Bank will possibly become impassable and forecasters urge residents to use caution while driving.
