NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Over the last three days, southeast Louisiana and Coastal Mississippi have received 3-6 inches of rains as some isolated areas have recorded up to eight inches. We are under several flood warnings both north and south of the lake.
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 SW flow and with embedded disturbances, daily triggers for showers and storms everyday this week.
High temps 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 tonight, 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!
