As the initial round of storms has pushed through Acadiana it appears as if we got lucky in regards to the severe weather event.

The watch will be allowed to expire at 9:00 pm and a few western parishes have been removed from the watch area, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see more get pulled.

While the threat of widespread severe weather isn’t as great a flooding threat will persist with several inches of rain falling in some of Acadiana’s northern parishes.

Doppler estimated rain totals through Sunday evening.

A Flash Flood Warning is in effect for this area through 8:15 pm with some additional rainfall on the way, and while rain seems to be easing redevelopment still can’t be ruled out.

Flash Flood Warning in effect until 8:15 pm.

There’s some showers that are redeveloping offshore and moving north, so not out of the woods just yet but it’s been encouraging so far this evening.

Showers will stick around, and be a little more scattered, on Monday as the low drags in some wrap around moisture sparking perhaps a few additional storms.

After that, however, the rest of the work week is looking nice and sunny giving us a real chance to dry out.
