Wednesday Night: Flash Flood Watch


— AS CONFIDENT AS :00 P.M. — AT CONFIDENT, AT 2:00 A.M. — P.M. SCOTT: — SCOTT: IT IS WINDY OUTSIDE. MARGARET: THE WIND IS STILL GUSTING. WE ARE IN THE UPPER 70’S. THERE IS A LOT OF RAIN OUT THERE, JUST NOT OVER US. WE HAVE STRONG STORMS OVER TEXAS AND RAIN IS BEGINNING TO DEVELOP OVER THE SOUTH PORTION OF THE STATE. THIS IS A MAJOR BAND OF RAIN EXTENDING INTO THE NORTHEAST PORTION OF LOUISIANA. CHECK OUT THIS STORM, WE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THIS BECAUSE IT IS MOVING NORTHEAST AND IT WILL IMPACT REPORT — SHREVEPORT. AND THEY ALREADY HAVE SIGNIFICANT RAIN. YOU CAN TAKE A LOOK AT THESE STORMS. IT IS LOOKING BETTER RIGHT NOW IN SHREVEPORT, BUT AGAIN, THE HEAVY RAIN IS MOVING THAT WAY AND TOWARD MONROE. YOU HAVE REALLY HEAVY RAIN THERE. THERE ARE A LOT OF STORM ICONS IN THAT AREA AND THEY INDICATE FLOODING RAIN. THE UPPER LEVEL LOW IS ON THE MOVE. IT WILL BE PUSHING TO THE EAST AND AS IT DOES, RAIN CHANCES FOR US GO UP. ONCE THAT GOES OUT, OUR WEATHER WILL BE BETTER. WE JUST HAVE TO GET TO SUNDAY. YOU CAN LOOK IN THE RISK FOR SEVERE WEATHER TONIGHT, IT IS ONLY A MARGINAL RISK. THAT IS ON THE LOW END. THE FLIGHT — SLIGHT RISK IS OVER ANOTHER PART OF THE STATE. WE CAN LOOK AT WHAT IS HAPPENING AND THERE IS NOT MUCH. WE HAVE A FEW SHOWERS, MAINLY ON THE NORTH SHORE. IT IS INCREASING OVER HERE NORTH OF BATON ROUGE. AND THAT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR RAIN CHANCES GOING UP. TONIGHT, WE HAVE SCATTERED SHOWERS FOR THE MOST PART. IN THE MORNING, IT INDICATES THE POTENTIAL FOR A SQUALL LINE TO DEVELOP TO THE WEST AND IT IS FORECAST TO MOVE EAST, KIND OF OVER I-55 AND I-12, OVER NEAR THIBODEAU. IT IS NOT LOOKING PRETTY. THIS IS JUST ONE INDICATOR OF WHAT THE MODELS ARE SHOWING. RAIN CHANCES ARE HIGH, ABOUT 90% TOMORROW. EARLY ON FRIDAY MORNING, WE WILL HAVE MORE ACTIVITY. A MORNING, THAT IS THE TIME I AM MOST CONCERNED WITH. IN THE MORNING, HEAVY RAIN . IT WILL BE VERY HEAVY IN BATON ROUGE. IT IS SO MIDDLE EAST WITH SCATTERED STORMS. ON THE NORTH SHORE , SOUTH SHORE, AND INTO THE MISSISSIPPI GULF COAST. THIS IS 8:30 A.M. AND IT SHOULD HOLD TRUE, THIS WILL BE THE AREA POUNDED. AND THEN IT WILL MOVE SOUTH. WE WILL GET A BREAK ON FRIDAY NIGHT. BUT THERE IS MORE RAIN. AS THEY LOOK AT THE FORECAST MODELS, BY FRIDAY MORNING IT INDICATES POTENTIAL FOR ABOUT TWO INCHES. FRIDAY AFTERNOON, IT IS SHOWING THE TOTAL OF 3-4 INCHES. BUT, AS WE LOOK AT THE FORECAST FROM STORM PREDICTION CENTER, IT SHOWS 12 INCHES THROUGH SATURDAY. THAT IS THE PROBLEM, THE REAL POTENTIAL THAT WE COULD GET HEAVY RAIN FOR SATURDAY AS WELL. THE BIG PICTURE WILL — PICTURE WE ARE GOING TO RAIN AND IT WILL HEAVY. WE HAVE AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE MOVING OUT QUICKLY AND THEN WE WILL HAVE RAIN IN THE MISSISSIPPI GULF COAST. SATURDAY, THIS IS LATE FRIDAY NIGHT, WHICH LOOKS OK. FINGERS CROSSED, IT WILL BE OK. THEN ON SATURDAY, HERE WE ARE, EARLY MORNING. WE ARE SHOWING THE RAIN INCREASING WITH POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY RAIN. WE ARE GOING TO WATCH IT, KEEP YOU POSTED, JUST STAY WEATHER AWARE. 3:00 IN THE AFTERNOON, WE’LL HAVE SCATTERED SHOWERS TOMORROW. ON FRIDAY, A BIG CHANCE IN THE MORNING, THEN THE AFTERNOON. SATURDAY LOOKS LIKE RAIN. BUT THEN THE SUN WILL COME OUT.
