Storms continue Friday with more rain expected Saturday

More heavy rain could lead to flash flooding Friday and Saturday. We will finally dry out Sunday.

NEW ORLEANS — **A flash flood watch is in effect until noon Saturday for an additional 2-4 inches of rain.**

We'll see more showers and storms on Friday. We could see a round of storms in the morning into the afternoon with some breaks. A more widespread rain looks to move in after sunset and into tonight. Any additional rainfall at this point will lead to flooding problems as the ground is already saturated. The highest chance for flooding problems through Friday night will be on the northshore and South Mississippi. Rivers are already swollen, so if you live along a river make sure you're checking the river forecast for your area frequently as these can change quickly depending on where rain occurs. Additional rainfall of 2-4 inches is possible through tonight with isolated higher amounts. A few storms could be severe with damaging wind gusts and large hail.

Saturday afternoon remains cloudy with a few showers possible, but expect another round of more widespread light to moderate rain by Saturday evening and night. This could add another 1-2 inches to our overall rain totals. 

By Sunday the rain should push out of the area and we finally dry out! Sunday looks mostly sunny during the afternoon with highs in the low 70s. It looks like we stay dry and mostly sunny through much of next week with highs in the mid 70s.
