Flooding Threat Shifts South to the Gulf Coast

The Gulf Coast has seen isolated rainshowers that has produced locally heavy downpours since Hurricane Ida soaked southeastern Louisiana.

Excessive Rainfall

Tuesday

As a stalled out frontal boundary lingers across the Gulf Coast, isolated showers and storms coming onshore across Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and the Florida Peninsula may produce some locally heavy rain that may contribute to isolated flooding.

Wednesday

Showers and thunderstorms along a very weak frontal boundary is likely for Alabama, Florida and Georgia along the Gulf Coast. This in combination with an area of investigation (Read More Here) in the Gulf of Mexico may increase rainfall intensity. Localized rainfall up to 3-5″ may be possible into the Big Bend of Florida and up through Jacksonville, FL.

Thursday

Wednesday’s rainfall for Florida and Georgia still remains associated with a cold front dropping in, but is also in combination with an area of low pressure in the Gulf that may push some rainfall into these areas. Some isolated spots may see 2-3″ of isolated rain.

Forecast

West to east training of heavy rain and thunderstorms could lead to a quick 3-5″ of rain in spots, which would  lead to flooding, especially in locations already hit by heavy rain the previous week.
