After producing flooding rains in the Houston area on Tuesday the remnants of Beta are finally starting to move out to the northeast, which will bring rounds of heavy showers to Acadiana through the day Wednesday.

Those showers will have the potential to produce some localized flooding in some of the low lying areas that are prone for water pooling water, as a result a Flash Flood Watch has been posted for the remainder of the day.

Rain will be on and off through the majority of the day as moisture wraps around the low as it moves through central portions of Louisiana, which means that some of the highest rain totals will likely be found in northern Acadiana.

That's where the low is expected to move through later Wednesday afternoon, which is also the area where the winds will be the strongest with gusts likely around the 20-25 mph range.

When all is said and done we will likely average between 2-6" of rain with some of the higher amounts in the region of Acadiana north of Highway 190.

After this low finally moves out of the area Acadiana will be given a chance to dry out and the forecast will mercifully slow down for at least a week.
