A flash flood watch goes into effect at noon Tuesday and lasts through Thursday for an expected 3-5+ inches of rain which could cause street flooding. The City of New Orleans has already suspended its parking restrictions on neutral grounds, which allow residents to park their cars on higher ground in anticipation of possible street flooding. A stationary front will sag into our region today to help spark a few rounds of showers and storms in the next few days. Along the front, several disturbances will ride along the boundary and trigger showers and storms. The first round of rain will likely arrive Tuesday afternoon before subsiding in the evening and night. The severe threat has been upgraded to a level 2 'slight' risk of severe storms, meaning a few isolated storms could turn severe with high wind gusts, hail and/or an isolated tornado. Also some quick downpours could drop a few inches of rain, which could cause some isolated street flooding. There could also be some issues along many Northshore rivers which are either above or near flood stage. While all rivers are currently falling, any additional rain could cause them to rise. A cold front could move through Wednesday, helping to drop temperatures into the low 70s through the end of the week, with another front possibly moving through Saturday. Even with the front Wednesday, overrunning moisture from the west may keep rain chances on the higher side through Saturday morning after the passage of a second front or surge from the north.
