NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Flooding is finally on a downward turn as the National Weather Service downgraded the flood warnings to flood advisories across the area. Observers report that water levels are stable and should slowly fall through the end of the weekend. Heavy down pours could slow that drainage a bit and we are seeing a few of those storms across the region today.
Typical August weather is in place with the Bermuda high pushing moisture inland and storms triggered by daytime heating. Sunday we will see an up tick in rain coverage as a frontal boundary to our north pushes south and stalls nearby. Rain coverage will stay high into the beginning of the week.
Tropical Storm Fiona is weakening and expected to dissipate in the next couple of days well out to sea. Two strong tropical waves are expected to develop during the next week. One is far out in the Atlantic and the other still hasn't emerged from the coast of Africa. We will monitor these closely over the next several days.
