Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 3:57 AM CDT May. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect from 7 am CDT this morning
through Tuesday evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southeast Louisiana and Mississippi, including the
following areas, in southeast Louisiana, Ascension,
Assumption, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville,
Livingston, lower Jefferson, lower Lafourche, lower
Plaquemines, lower St. Bernard, lower Terrebonne, northern
Tangipahoa, Orleans, Pointe Coupee, southern Tangipahoa, St.
Charles, St. Helena, St. James, St. John The Baptist, St.
Tammany, upper Jefferson, upper Lafourche, upper Plaquemines,
upper St. Bernard, upper Terrebonne, Washington, West Baton
Rouge, and West Feliciana. In Mississippi, Amite, Hancock,
Harrison, Jackson, Pearl River, Pike, Walthall, and Wilkinson.

* From 7 am CDT this morning through Tuesday evening

* a stalled front will bring multiple rounds of heavy rainfall
over the watch area. Much of the area has already received heavy
rainfall over the weekend which has resulted in a saturated
ground.

* Additional heavy rainfall from thunderstorms is expected to
produce storm total accumulations generally between 4 and 7
inches through Tuesday evening. Some locally higher amounts are
expected. This will result in rapid runoff and possible flash
flooding. In addition there could be some minor river flooding
issues as well.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
