Besides the severe weather threat, 1-2 inches of rain with locally higher totals of 3 inches are possible.

The weather should begin to improve Tuesday afternoon, the NWS said, as drier air moves in from the west.

A violent storm that rolled through parts of south Louisiana on Monday morning brought an inch and a half of rain, gusts up to 60 mph and left down trees, flooded roads and power outages in its wake.
