2:30PM Monday: Severe risk in the forecast for Tuesday into Wednesday!


After a very active start and end to yesterday across WGNO’s viewing area, storms have moved east before they return again in our upcoming week. Anticipate an overall dry, pleasant night tonight, with 60s-70s north of Lake Pontchartrain and low 70s south!

Keep your umbrella close as on and off showers will be the themes by Monday through Wednesday.

Flash Flood Watch was cancelled early yesterday as 1-3 inches in rainfall did not overwhelm drainage systems, but more heavy rainfall risks will become an issue again Tuesday. Right now, the Storm Prediction Center is issuing an Enhanced Risk (Level 3 out of 5) or Slight Risk (Level 2 out of 5) north but Marginal Risk (Level 1 out of 5) south.

Aside from any potential flash flooding, gusty winds and hail potential are the primary concerns with an isolated tornado risk being tough to rule out entirely once more late Tuesday.

Have ways to receive warning information in case a severe thunderstorm or tornado organizes again.

Keep up, updates remain avaialable online on WGNO.com and tomorrow during WGNO News at 5PM, 6PM, and 10PM!
