Flood watch remains in effect, more rain in store

Heavy rainfall and thunderstorms are expected to move into the New Orleans area Sunday night (Feb. 25), according to the National Weather Service. With saturated ground and gusts winds possible, we could run into the issue of downed trees. As we look ahead to the afternoon we'll continue to deal with cloudy skies and lingering light to moderate showers. On the low end we could see some central Alabama locations like Alexander City and Clanton with highs near 60. Once the front clears, the rain should begin to clear out. Highs are cool but still mild for this time of the year as we climb into the 50's Sunday.

Strong storms will move into the area by 11 pm (to the northwest) and 5 am (to the southeast).

The high pressure continues to build in from our west Monday leading to clouds giving way to plentiful sunshine.

Tuesday. Partly cloudy. Highs in the upper 60s. Right now these two frontal passages aren't overly concerning in regards to severe weather due to limited instability, but it's something we'll watch closely. Tuesday features increasing clouds with showers threatening by evening. Tonight there is the potential for some storms to become severe. We will still probably get some storms moving in too.

Another frontal system will bring a few rounds of rain Wednesday and Thursday. Highs Wednesday look to reach the low 80°s.
