BATON ROUGE, LA (AP) -
An area-wide Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through mid-day
Monday and a Severe Thunderstorm Watch is still in effect until 2:00 PM for
parishes to the west of the Atchafalaya Basin. But all in all, the
outlook for Sunday afternoon is much improved for WAFB communities!
Active storms are currently well to our north and are likely to
remain there through the afternoon. We can't rule out a t-storm or two
this afternoon somewhere within the WAFB viewing area and we still expect to
see a few passing showers during the afternoon hours, but the threat for
severe weather during the afternoon has abated.
However, we still anticipate a Severe Weather Watch (either a
T-Storm or Tornado Watch) to be posted for the WAFB viewing area later this
evening or tonight.
While most of the storm energy is currently to our north, a cold
front is still on schedule to move west-to-east across the viewing area later
tonight. The most likely time for thunderstorms will be during the 11:00
PM through 4:00 AM window for WAFB neighborhoods and communities.
The weather set-up continues to include a "Slight Risk"
for severe weather across the viewing area in association with storms linked to
the overnight east-bound cold front. The threat looks to be greater for
the northern half of the viewing area compared to the southern parishes, but
the entire WAFB region should be 'on guard' tonight.
The main threats appear to be damaging winds and isolated
tornadoes, with the NWS Storm Prediction Center noting that there is a
possibility of seeing one or more strong EF-2 tornadoes with this event.
