Rene: A wet couple of days, as we watch the Gulf

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - An upper level low pressure system approaching us from Texas is pouring tropical moisture over southeastern Louisiana. A large area of showers and thunderstorms moved in from the Gulf.

Earlier this morning, there was a brief tornado warning for Plaquemines and St Bernard Parishes but expired without issue. Showers and thundershowers, some heavy, will continue tonight, tomorrow and Tuesday.

Another area of low pressure in the southern Gulf of Mexico is still being watched for tropical development. But with upper low to our west creating shear, this tropical system won't have much of a chance to strengthen and will likely stay to our east.

The National Hurricane Center may send an Air Force Reconnaissance aircraft into the southern Gulf , if necessary. We will keep you posted!
