Watch LIVE Radar in the story below
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - A lull in shower and t-storm activity Tuesday afternoon was welcomed for many local neighborhoods.
But one more widespread round of heavy showers and t-storms is expected to roll through the area early Wednesday morning. A majority of the action will occur during the predawn hours Wednesday.
Be sure to have a way of receiving severe weather notifications in the event flood or severe weather warnings are issued. An additional 1″ to 2″ of rain is forecast for Wednesday, which will continue the threat for localized flooding.
After the predawn storms, showers and t-storms will stay scattered in nature through the remainder of Wednesday. By Wednesday evening, a cold front will move through, sweeping out the moisture, rain, and humid conditions.
After Wednesday, the remainder of the week will be fantastic. Temperatures will trend below normal through Saturday. Skies will be mainly clear and outdoor conditions will be comfortable with low humidity.
The entire weekend will be nice, but Sunday will start to see warmer temperatures and slightly humid conditions.
We keep the forecast dry through Sunday but unsettled weather (showers and t-storms) returns for the upcoming work/school week. Rain chances will range between 40% and 60% daily. Heavy rain and even a few strong storms can’t be ruled out especially by mid-week.
