A series of disturbances will continue riding across the deep south impacting much of coastal Louisiana with waves of thunderstorms. Some storms overnight brought severe weather including golf ball sized hail over parts of Cameron and Calcasieu parishes. The initial line of storms will continue moving across the area this morning. Although the severe weather threat appears to be diminishing, these breaks have been short lived over the past couple of days. A flood threat will remain as storms can easily produce 1-2 inch per hour rains over already saturated grounds. Look for rains and storms to become more broken in nature as we progress through this afternoon.

Another wave of rain and storms is expected later this afternoon into this evening. Short range models push another strong line of storms into the region. Scattered rain and storms with heavy downpours will continue and the flood threat will continue through Saturday. By Sunday, rains will remain likely during the morning, then taper off during the afternoon. Sunshine will return Monday.
