Severe storms push out of viewing area, rain continues

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

A squall line got the morning started with some heavy rain, gusty winds and frequent lightning. 

Behind the squall comes light rain. It looks like light rain will be the main issue for the morning commute. 

We may still see a flare up of some storms this afternoon. 

Clouds and rain should actually help to keep temperatures down, but maybe by only a few degrees. With another flare up today, flash flooding could become an issue and a Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 8 a.m. Tuesday. 

We are still expecting highs in the mid 80s. Not quite as much rain, but still around 50-60 percent coverage for Wednesday and Thursday before we drop to more isolated chances by Friday and the weekend.
