Bruce: Expect thunderstorms the rest of the week

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Over the last three days, Southeast Louisiana and Coastal Mississippi have received three to six inches of rains as some isolated areas have recorded up to eight inches.

We are under several flood warnings on both the north and south shores. Never drive in flooded areas as there is no way to gauge the depth of water.

Our upper pattern is stalled and will become reinforced by another upper-low out west. This keeps us under a southwest flow and with embedded disturbances, daily triggers for showers and storms every day this week.

High temperatures and rainfall totals all depend on the timing of any rain and the placement of the heaviest storms. A flash flood watch remains in effect until Tuesday night, but rain remains in the forecast through the week.

A break-down in the upper pattern this weekend looks to finally allow us to dry out and models indicate a cold front on Monday dropping temps and humidity.

In New Orleans East at least 2,150 homes have solar energy and several homeowners are landing the panels at little or no initial cost. At Mary Queen of Vietnam, the church installed a large solar system including a hot water heater panel. “One single panel like that we don't have to use any other energy from the roof to make the water heater work and so it's a big saving to us,” Anthon...
