Storms to move in Sunday evening, flooding possible

Updated:

New Orleans, La.- After a brief break from the rains on Saturday, meteorologists forecast another front will trigger additional rain and thunderstorms for Sunday.   

"The front will slowly move through the area, only to stall to the south of us, and overrunning moisture will cause a miserable cold and wet rain for Monday and Tuesday, with highs only in the 50s and lows in the upper 40s," explains Fox 8 Meteorologist Nicondra Norwood. 

In addition, the National Weather Service has a Flood Warning in effect for the Bogue Falaya River at Boston Street in Covington until Tuesday morning. Officials reported the river stage was at 6.9 feet at 9:30 a.m. Sunday.

 Meteorologists with the National Weather Service project minor flooding will occur and the river is expected to fluctuate over the next day or two but remain above flood stage through Monday.  

Forecasters say water will rise onto the right bank at 7 feet flooding property of the Bogue Falaya Towers at East Boston Street and could possibly threaten commercial properties on the left bank near Military Road.  

Bogue Falaya River Park and Christ Episcopal School grounds also have the possibility to experience flooding.           

On Wednesday, an additional trough will push the moisture further south and east, giving us more winter sunshine with high temperatures in the low 50s for the middle and end of the week.
