Risk of severe storms in New Orleans increased to 'enhanced'


The National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center assigns a rating for the risk of severe weather on a scale of 1 to 5. The associated thunderstorm also produced three other tornado sightings causing damage throughout rural areas of Marion and Warren Counties. An Enhanced Risk is forecast for east Texas and northwest Louisiana for late in the day into the night.

Flash flooding will also be a concern due to the heavy rain in some storms, especially in areas that see multiple storms move through. Isolated supercell thunderstorms are possible along with possible strong tornadoes in and near this area. "As we go through the day on Monday, into the heart of the afternoon, those storms are going to be sweeping through states like Georgia and Florida and over into SC and North Carolina". This system will bring the possibility of strong to severe storms with it. Storms could impact the area as early as Monday morning, and could impact the morning commute to work. Severe inches of rain will be possible.

Another line of storms in Lunenburg and Mecklenburg Counties is moving east towards Interstate 85. The rain will likely be a bit more widespread this morning compared to just a few isolated or scattered storms during the afternoon. Moisture levels will increase significantly after the warm front moves through and that is when we are most likely to see storms.
