North shore may see heavy rain tonight


Showers are developing just off shore again late this morning and early afternoon as is typical this time of year. We saw several individual storms cause major issues in isolated areas with some locations receiving 1-2" of rain. Some areas of Baton Rouge and Washington Parish near Franklinton saw flash flooding on Wednesday.

On visible satellite it looks like a weak surface low is to our east stirring things up along with the typical June sea breeze. Today look for storms to perk up again into the afternoon. The north shore will fall under a marginal risk for severe storms later in the day. This is the lowest risk category for strong storms, but a few areas will end up with the heavy rain much like yesterday. 

The rest of us end up with partly cloudy skies and hot conditions in the 90s once again. The one good thing about the rain is that it does cool us down a bit.
