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.

* until 7 PM CDT this evening

* Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches with isolated
  higher amounts possible. These additional amounts will be found
  mainly inside rainfall bands that train over the same areas. In
  addition to the flash flooding potential we can expect to see
  further rises on area rivers leading to flooding along several
  rivers. Drainage of heavy rainfall will be impeded along the
  coast where high tides and areas of coastal inundation continue.
  Greatest concern for any flash flooding will be across coastal
  Mississippi which has seen 5 to 10 inches of rain with isolated
  amounts near 12 inches already.


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.
