Flash Flood Watch Louisiana

A tornado watch is in effect late Friday night through late Saturday evening across south Mississippi and southeast Louisiana. Some of the initial heavy rain development could start late early Saturday morning across portions of southwest Mississippi into south central Louisiana, remaining areas west of I-55 Saturday morning to around midday, and from late morning through the afternoon and evening across the portions of southeast Louisiana and south Mississippi to the east of I-55 and in coastal areas. Average rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are expected, however locally higher totals above 6 inches will be possible where slow moving or multiple bands of thunderstorms move over the same area. These rainfall amounts could cause flash flooding and river flooding is likely.

The tornado watch has been lifted for East Baton Rouge and several surrounding parishes, including West Baton Rouge and East and West Feliciana.

Tornado warnings were also in effect for the area as severe weather rolled through Saturday morning, but were lifted as of 9 a.m.
