The Flash Flood Watch continues for
* portions of southeast Louisiana and Mississippi, including the
following areas, in southeast Louisiana, Ascension,

* through this evening
* Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches with isolated
higher amounts possible. These additional amounts will be found
mainly inside rainfall bands that train over the same areas. In
addition to the flash flooding potential we can expect to see
further rises on area rivers leading to flooding along several
rivers. Drainage of heavy rainfall will be impeded along the
coast where high tides and areas of coastal inundation continue.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
