...Flash Flood Watch in effect through tonight... .Heavy rains over the last fews days have occurred over Jefferson, Orange, southern Jasper and Newton counties in southeast Texas as well as western Calcasieu and Cameron parishes in southwest Louisiana. Rainfall amounts of 4 to 8 inches have been common, with isolated locations near 10 inches. With deep tropical moisture still in place over the region and rain chances remaining likely through the day, the Flash Flood Watch has been extended until 7 pm this evening. While forecast rainfall amounts through the day are generally expected to remain in the 1 to 2 inch range, heavier bands of precipitation will have the potential to produce higher amounts over areas that are already saturated with previous rainfall. Note that while all of Calcasieu parish has been added to this Flash Flood Watch, it is the western half of the parish, where significant rainfall fell yesterday, that is susceptible to flash flooding. The flash flood threat is considerably lower across the eastern half of the parish including Sulphur, Westlake, Lake Charles and Moss Bluff. ...FLASH FLOOD WATCH NOW IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS EVENING...
