...Heavy rainfall still possible in far eastern Louisiana and
Southeast Mississippi...

.Moist tropical air in place, along with the advancement
northward of Subtropical Storm Alberto, will provide
opportunities for heavy rainfall and possible flooding Sunday
through early Tuesday. Given an adjustment of the forecast track
slightly eastward, the chances for heavy rainfall accumulations
are lower for east-central Louisiana.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

Additional Flash Flood Watches may be extended in area and time
at a later time throughout the weekend as the situation unfolds.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
