This holiday weekend is going to be one to remember for those living along the Gulf Coast.
As you can see, millions living in the southern parishes of Louisiana through southern Mississippi into the tip of southern Alabama and the Florida panhandle look to be affected by flooding rains of at least 8-10 inches. Some areas in the southernmost reaches of Louisiana…including the greater New Orleans area may see 15 inches or more of rain as the tropical depression slowly crawls across the region.
You will also notice with this latest update we’re beginning to see better chances for rain as the system moves slowly into central Alabama by Wednesday morning and possibly into middle Tennessee by Wednesday night and Thursday. Should this track hold true, Southern Kentucky may finally see some beneficial soaking rains as we close out next week.
Again, this is all still very preliminary but we’ll continue to track this over the coming days.
