BATON ROUGE, La. (NBC33) — We will experience another hot and dry day, but chances of rainfall return tomorrow. A few storms could be strong and produce heavy downpours tomorrow afternoon.
The Stormtracker33 Futurecast model shows us that partly cloudy skies will hang out over the Capital Area this afternoon and evening. An upper-level disturbance entering the NW corner of Louisiana will give cities like Shreveport and Alexandria the chance for severe weather. The Storm Prediction Center has placed NW Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas under a Slight Risk of severe weather.
As the storm system drops southward, clouds will increase over south Louisiana, overnight. Isolated showers, not severe, will also increase by morning.
Widespread storms spread out after 12:00 p.m. tomorrow and hang around through your Friday evening commute. As mentioned above, a few storms could produce heavy downpours tomorrow afternoon and evening. Due to a few storms producing heavy rain, flash flooding may be a concern in some areas--especially since our ground is still saturated from the storms on Tuesday. Be prepared for any flooding or severe weather alerts tomorrow; download the NBC33 mobile app at www.nbc33tv.com/mobile.
