[LAUGHTER] ♪ SCOTT: LET’S TALK ABOUT THE WEATHER. I KNOW THAT WE STILL HAVE A THREADING FLIGHT — WE STILL HAVE A FLOODING THREAT. THE WAY DONE IN THIS AREA WITH THE RAIN? MARGARET: I AM CONCERNED OVER LAPLACE. THESE ARE THE AREAS WHERE WE HAVE FLOODING OCCURRING AND WHERE YOU COULD HAVE FLOODING, THE AMITE RIVER AND ITS TRIBUTARIES. WATER IS RISING. THERE ARE CONCERNS AND HE WANTED TO PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT IS GOING ON. YOU MAY HA VE TO MOVE YOUR CAR AND POSSESSIONS. BE AWARE OF THE POTENTIAL. THIS IS A RECORD FLOOD, WE HAVE NOT SEEN A SITUATION LIKE THIS BEFORE. I NEED TO POINT OUT, THIS IS JOSH. HE WENT TO VOLUNTEER, HELPING PEOPLE TO GET THINGS OUT AND BRINGING SUPPLIES. THIS IS WHAT SO MANY PEOPLE ARE DOING. HIGH-PRESSURE TO THE EAST AND WE HAVE AN ONSHORE FLOW AND A LOT OF HUMIDITY OUT THERE. THERE IS A FRONT TO THE NORTH, WE ARE NOT EXPECTING COLD FRONTS TO COME THROUGH ANYTIME SOON. AS WE LOOK AT WHAT IS HAPPENING, UNFORTUNATELY THE BATON ROUGE AREA RIGHT OVER LIVINGSTON PARISH GOT MORE HEAVY RAIN TODAY. THEY DO NOT NEED IT. AND WE DID HAVE A FLOOD WARNING IN EFFECT FOR BATON ROUGE. AT THIS POINT, IT IS A FLOOD WARNING BECAUSE WE HAVE FLOODING OCCURRING IN ALL OF THE GREEN AREAS. WE DO HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF RAIN ON THE COAST AND IS GOING TO THE NORTH. I SAW A SHOWER, THERE IS, VERY CLOSE TO COUNTER AND MOVING INTO — KENNER AND MOVING INTO THE AREA. AND WE DO HAVE SOME THUNDERSTORMS OVER HERE. WE HAVE A VERY STRONG STORM THAT DEVELOPED AND MOVED OVER THE CAUSEWAY. I HOPE YOU ARE NOT DRIVING ON IT, BECAUSE THE WIND WAS GUSTING NEAR 64 MILES PER HOUR. AND NORTH OF BATON ROUGE, AS MUCH AS FIVE INCHES OF RAIN. CUT IT BACK A LITTLE BIT, BUT THEY DID GET POUNDED. AND LAKE VISTA MY CLOSER TO TWO INCHES — THIS DEBT, CLOSER TO TWO INCHES. — VISTA, CLOSER T 2 INCHES. LATER TONIGHT, THE RAIN WILL DIMINISH. IN THE MORNING, THERE COULD BE AN ISOLATED SHOWER. AND CHECK OUT THE FORECAST MODEL. THE TRUTH IS, I DO NOT SEE AS MUCH RAIN FOR TOMORROW. IT IS A 30% CHANCE. IT WILL BE HOTTER AND-VENTURES WILL BE IN THE LOW TO MID — HOTTER, AND TEMPERATURES WILL BE IN THE MID TO LOW 80’S — 90’S. AND THERE WILL BE RAIN AROUND FOR THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. HOT WEATHER IS AHEAD. THAT WILL BE TOUGH FOR THOSE OUTSIDE MY CLEANING UP THE MESS. AND WITHOUT ELECTRICITY, IT WILL BE TOUGH. THE HIGH TODAY IS 92. AND WE ARE REPORTING 88 DEGREES AT THE AIRPORT WITH A SOUTHEAST WIND AND A LOT OF HUMIDITY. TEMPERATURES RIGHT NOW, QUITE A RANGE. 77 FOR SLIDELL. AND 85 DEGREES IN L CHASE. — BELLE CHASSE.

AN TEMPERATURES TOMORROW, INTO THE 90’S AND WE WILL HAVE MID 90’S POSSIBLE. NOW WE ARE WATCHING THE TROPICS. THIS IS OFF OF THE COAST OF AFRICA AND MOVING TO THE WEST. A 90% CHANCE OF TROPICAL DEVELOPMENT. OVER TIME, IT WILL GO INTO DRIER AIR. THIS IS NOT GOING TO BE A LAND STORM, THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WILL BE MOVING INTO THE CENTRAL ATLANTIC. YOU CAN SEE THE FORECAST MODELS GENERALLY TAKING IT TO THE NORTH AND CENTRAL ATLANTIC. THERE IS THE GLOBAL FORECAST MODEL, AND ALSO KNOWN AS THE AMERICAN MODEL, THERE IS POTENTIAL IT COULD BECOME A DEPRESSION OR STORM. IF IT DOES BECOME A STORM, THEN A MOVIE FIONA. TOMORROW, NEAR 90 DEGREES. AND INTO THE WEEK, IT WILL BE MID 90’S. IT WILL BE HOT AND THE HEAT INDEX WILL BE AROUND 100-105. AND IT LOOKS LIKE A BETTER
