Tropical Storm Beta has been completely removed from the steering currents and as a result will spend most of the day sitting just inland on the central Texas coastline, but a front will move through the middle of the country and finally kick Beta to the east.

After weakening through the day on Tuesday it will be a tropical depression by early Wednesday which is when the center of the storm is expected to move through southwest Louisiana and finally clearing the area by Thursday.

The tropical storm warnings along the Louisiana coast have been dropped, although the warnings are still up for areas west of Sabine Pass along the Texas coastline, and the coastal waterways will also still be under a warning.

As for Acadiana we still have a Flash Flood Watch that is up until Wednesday evening and we will need to watch the showers as they set up as they can still produce several inches of rain, which could put a strain on low lying roadways and local water ways.

Rain totals could still top several inches and we need to be on the look out for that 3-6" range with hotspots of around 8-10" over the next several days, the heaviest rain looks to move through mid morning on Wednesday.

Winds will stay steady around 10-15 mph and the gusts could push 20-25 mph, again this could increase as the depression moves over us on Wednesday.
