Soggy morning, leading to a soggy afternoon

It’s been a soggy start to Wednesday, which shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, as the lead up to this front has been fairly well advertised.

Showers will persist through the remainder of the day with moments of heavy rain followed by moments of dreary, misty weather.

A few breaks in the clouds may be possible but for the most part showers will be the main order of business through the afternoon.

There’s nothing overly nefarious about any of these showers, but the moisture levels are to such a high level that at times it will feel like the sky is falling.

Rest assured though reader that the sky is not actually falling but for a few minutes the rain will come down in torrents.

The difference between these showers and the Biblical heavy rains of Noah is that if you wait a little bit the rains will move on and the water will start to drain.

That’s the key to drainage in south Louisiana, breaking up the showers just long enough to get that water off the road and into the coulees.

It’s truly amazing how much water the ground here can actually take before it gets overwhelmed, and Wednesday will provide enough breaks that flooding won’t be an issue.

That being said low lying roadways may end up seeing a little ponding which can cause some issues, if you encounter this find an alternate route.

None of this is out of the ordinary, we live in south Louisiana, so keep the umbrella with you and do your best to stay dry.
