Threat of heavy afternoon and evening rain

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for the Metro New Orleans area and all parishes south of the lake through Thursday.

Heavy showers and thunderstorms are possible through the evening and overnight, says WWL TV Meteorologist Laura Buchtel

"Rain and thunderstorms are likely.  Heavy downpours and scatted thunderstorms are possible throughout the evening," according to Buchtel.

She says areas that see a quick one to three inches of rain are vulnerable to street flooding, especially areas that have already seen heavy rains.

Buchtel says we are in a stormy pattern.

"Tomorrow, more of the same.  We are still keeping that heavy rain chance in at 60 percent for Wednesday."
