NEW ORLEANS — WWL-TV Meteorologist Alexandra Cranford
Rain chances stay elevated Sunday, and there will be a risk for some isolated street flooding. Our entire area is highlighted for a low-end risk of flooding rains. The flood risk looks like it will happen in just a few spots as opposed to widespread.
Rain chances stay near 70% on Monday. Rain amounts through Monday could be around 1-3 inches or perhaps more under heavier downpours.
A more typical 40% rain chance returns Tuesday and Wednesday, and temperatures will rise to low 90s again in the afternoons.
Models still indicate a cold front moving through sometime on Thursday bringing with it slightly less humid air on Friday!
In the tropics: In the central Atlantic, Tropical Storm Dorian has formed. The forecast track takes it near the Caribbean islands by Tuesday as a Category 1 hurricane. Models weaken the system once in the Caribbean. It's a long way out, so we will keep watching it.
Invest 98 is just off the coast of Miami in the Atlantic. The National Hurricane Center gives this wave a 70-90% chance for development in the coming days, but will remain off the US East Coast.
