Webster Parish is in the “bulls eye” of a weather pattern that could dump at least 10 inches of rain in the next few days.
Northwest Louisiana is under a flash flood watch until Thursday, Lisa May, a hydro-meteorological technician with the National Weather Service in Shreveport, said.
“The flash flood watch begins at 4 p.m. Tuesday and runs through 4 p.m. Thursday, expecting periods of heavy rainfall and going all the way through Saturday,” she said. “These rainfall totals are from (Tuesday) all the way through Friday night. We could see some torrential rain and flooding in lakes, rivers and bayous.”
She explained upper level tropics from California and Gulf moisture from the south will meet in the Ark-La-Tex.
“It’s going to all come together in Texas and that’s when we’re going to start seeing some thunderstorms and then when it comes over our way it’s just going to kind of stall out on top of us until it eventually moves off to the east,” she said.
