While many remained mostly dry this Saturday there were some particularly to the north that were hammered with heavy rain and that trend will continue through the rest of the weekend. The North Shore parishes and Pearl River County were under a Flash Flood Watch canceled late Saturday night as storms moved east. Areas in an near Baton Rouge recorded more than three inches of rain early Saturday and that complex of storms is slowly moving east. As it meets up with a sea breeze heavy amounts of rain will continue north of I-10 and along the I-12 corridor.
Look for several more rounds of rain as a cold front moves into the region on Sunday with even more widespread rain and storms. This will be our greatest chance for localized flooding. Stay tuned for any future watches that may be issued. There will be some breaks during the day, but many more of us will experience the torrential rains.
Monday should bring some breaks once again, but with a stalled front in the area some showers are likely to develop during the day. On Tuesday another strong disturbance will push through with another round of strong storms and heavy rains. Again flooding may be a concern.
Much drier and cooler air arrives for mid and late week as the upper trough finally pushes past the area late Tuesday into Wednesday. Overnight lows will actually reach the 50's away from the lake on Thursday and maybe even Friday morning as well.
