A Flood Advisory is issued for Jefferson, Orleans, Plaquemines, and St. Bernard until 6:45PM tonight as heavy rain in the area continues falling quickly.

Another Flood Advisory is issued for Ascension, St. Charles, St. James, and St. John the Baptist until 7PM.

Once again, the forecast for today across New Orleans and southeast Louisiana is cooler with humidity and a number of storms keeping temperatures lower across each side of Lake Pontchartrain!

Right now, the city’s restriction on neutral ground parking is lifted throughout Orleans because a Flood Advisories remain in effect until 7PM.

Maintain caution on the roads if you must travel and remember our go to phrase “turn around, don’t drown.” Street flooding will be the major concern in addition to gusty winds and a number of lightning strikes.
