A high risk of excessive rainfall for southwest Louisiana is not good news for an area that was hit very hard by Orkaan Ida just two weeks ago.
Over a foot of rain – with isolated totals of up to 20 inches of rain – is possible.
Intussen, a wide swath of 5-10 inches of rain will extend inland from far-East Texas across the central Gulf Coast.
Some tropical tornado’s, storm surge and gusty winds will also be dangerous especially east of the center of circulation.
In other weather news, strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible from the Central Plains to the Noordoos along a frontal boundary bringing the risk for hail, skadelike winde, an isolated tornado and heavy rain.
Temperatures remain above average for much of the U.S.
