Short Saturday Update: Showers Moving Through

Posted at 6:24 AM, Dec 08, 2018

Saturday morning has been off to the wet start we were all expecting with soaking showers getting going more or less across the whole state.

A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect across Acadiana through Saturday afternoon, and residence along the Bayou des Cannes should keep an eye on the water with minor flooding expected along the banks.

The good news is that the rain is a little less intense that previously expected and rain rates in the early goings have stayed pretty moderate.

This still makes for some slick roadways, however, so a little extra caution should still be taken on the roadways this morning.

Rain totals could still get up a little over an inch by Saturday afternoon which is an improvement from some of the possibilities we were looking at earlier this week.

As the front moves through around daybreak there will be a slight chance for some severe weather immediately along the coast, keep an eye out for a waterspout or two in the offshore waters.

Showers will start to ease up by mid morning with light drizzly activity hanging around until lunch time and then a solid layer of clouds through the rest of the day.

We’ve more or less seen our high temperature for the day so look for falling temperatures through the rest of the day and a cold wind coming in from the north.
