6:00AM VIDEO FORECAST from Meteorologist Scot Pilie — Flash Flood Watch continues. Round #2 of strong storms expected today. Here’s the details:
After a rough, stormy Tuesday, another round of strong storms is on the way for Wednesday with the active weather pattern continuing until early Saturday.
Soils are saturated after 2-5+” of rain on Tuesday, and it won’t take much to prompt additional flash flood issues. Flash Flood Watch continues for southeast Louisiana until noon on Thursday, and this watch may get extended.
Much of southeast Louisiana is within a Marginal Risk(Level 1 out of 5) for severe thunderstorms, but we may see that threat level increase to a Slight Risk(Level 2 out of 5). Primary risk from storms will be damaging wind & hail risk.
Look for rain and storms to move back in by late morning-early afternoon.
1-3″ of rainfall likely, with localized higher amounts possible.
A third wave of strong storms looks to move through earlier on Thursday morning. This wave will likely have less severe weather potential in terms of wind and hail, but will be capable of producing more flash flooding.
