After a very active start to today across WGNO’s viewing area, storms have temporarily ended here, locally.
Keep your umbrella close as on and off showers could still be the theme by late afternoon.
Anticipate an overall pleasant night tonight, with 60s north of Lake Pontchartrain and low 70s south!
Flash Flood Watch is issued, still, until late Sunday as 1-3 inches in rainfall will likely accompany more Central Louisiana thunderstorms heading east.
Anticipate an increase in rain chances through early tonight, especially north. Right now, the Storm Prediction Center is issuing a Slight Risk (Level 2 out of 5) nearly state-wide, then expanding it east.
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.
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 and 10PM!
