Heavy rainfall that is forecast all day Saturday (Dec. 8) has prompted a flash flood watch for the New Orleans area. The National Weather Service expects rain in the morning and afternoon, accompanied by high temperatures in the mid-60s and winds of 15 to 20 mph. Some of the storms could be severe. Rainfall of two to four inches, with locally higher amounts, can be expected. A small craft advisory has been issued on coastal waters as heavy winds accompany an incoming low-pressure system. The storms will move out by Sunday, but the temperature is likely to drop. Sunday’s highs are predicted to be in the lower 50s with nighttime lows in the upper 30s.
