Flash flood watch issued until noon Monday

Storms will roll in overnight into Monday morning with potential heavy rain. A few more rounds of rain are coming in the next few days.

NEW ORLEANS — ***Flash flood watch until noon Monday for much of the area except extreme coastal spots.

We enter an unsettled pattern this week as upper disturbances move overhead and a surface cold front stalls. 

The first wave of storms arrive late Sunday night into Monday morning, likely after about 2 a.m. A few more showers and storms will be in the area through Monday afternoon before rain tapers off at night. 

A few more rounds of rain will move in Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Each day the severe risk looks pretty low, but a few high wind gusts will be possible. 

The bigger threat may be rainfall. Right now we're expecting 1-3 inches of rain through the week. If we see some heavy storms set up and start to train, some of us may get higher totals than that. 

The highest totals will likely be north of the lake. 

Temperatures will fall Wednesday as the front nudges south of us. 

Then the front gets a stronger push south to dry us out on Thursday. 

Friday and the weekend look sunny and dry with low humidity.
