Stay Alert and Safe! Looks to be a significant rain event headed our way later this week

We are forecasting a stormy and wet week across southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana . Today and most of Tuesday are forecasted to be dry. But rain chances will be increasing dramatically by late this week.

We will be conducting a Facebook Live briefing at 5 PM this evening to discuss the details of this flooding threat and answer your questions. The big points are highlighted below.

Heavy Rain/Flooding Potential:
While bursts of heavy rain many lead to localized flooding beginning late Tuesday, more widespread heavy rain will be likely Thursday through Saturday. The flood threat will be increasing as well.

Rainfall estimates through Saturday: 5 to 10 inches
Some areas could receive more than 15 inches. Highest amounts are forecasted over southeast Texas and central Louisiana.

Besides flash flooding, we will be monitoring for rises in area rivers, especially the Neches and Sabine Rivers.

Severe Weather
The best risk for severe storms will on Wednesday and Thursday. At this time, the highest threat is forecasted over southeast Texas and central Louisiana. Large hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes will be possible.

Updated advisory! Stay Safe Alexandria

A significant severe weather outbreak is expected across the region later on today. Much of central and northern Louisiana has been highlighted in a moderate risk for severe weather (A moderate risk means that there is a 45% chance of seeing severe weather within 25 miles of any location within the highlighted area).

Storms will increase in intensity by around noon and continue through the late evening before ending overnight.

A tornado watch will likely be issued later on this morning. Please stay weather aware today and be prepared to move to a safe place if a warning is issued.

Take this weather event seriously! I will update as new warnings are available.
04/13/2019

Take this weather event seriously! I will update as new warnings are available.

If you have family in Louisiana, Mississippi, or East Texas. I highly recommend giving them a phone call and telling them to yield any tornado warning tomorrow. I have never personally seen a model output run like the 00z HRRR. Each one of those cells in Louisiana will be capable of producing long track, violent tornadoes. If any of my followers live in these area. Please, do not try and see the tornado. Please take shelter immediately. Live updates coming tomorrow.

Driver killed after truck explodes on Arkansas highway

If this doesn’t make you be aware of any type Large Vehicle Fire and it’s contents I am not sure what will. You never know what may be inside a large vehicle, truck and trailer, buses, RV’s? They have to be treated as structure fires from dispatch, response, and fire attack.

Authorities are investigating a fatal truck explosion Wednesday morning on an Arkansas highway.
