Reposted from the National Weather Service in Lake Charles' page:

Good morning,

The first image is our estimated rainfall totals for today June 5th through 6th (48 hours total). Certain areas can expect over 8 to 10 inches of rain with locally higher amounts possible. While this is for the next 48 hours, most of this is expected to fall within the next 24 hours.

The second image is the Weather Prediction Center's Excessive Rainfall outlook. A High Risk of flash flooding has been issued today for portions of southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana. The risk for flash flooding will shift eastward through Friday along the Gulf Coast. Never drive through a flooded roadway or around barricades.

More updates to be posted throughout the day.

From the National Weather Service in Lake Charles:

The weak, broad low pressure area in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico has a medium 40% chance for development before it moves inland over Mexico today or tonight.

We are expecting heavy rain over the next two days. Round one focuses on southeast Texas on Wednesday. Round two focuses on south central Louisiana on Thursday. Two to four inches of rain is expected, with locally higher amounts of eight inches possible. A flash flood watch will be issued later today.

Tides are running a foot to a foot and a half above normal and that will continue through this week. A coastal flood advisory will be issued.

On Thursday, there is a marginal 5% chance for strong to severe storms.

From the National Weather Service in Lake Charles:

The National Hurricane Center is continuing to monitor a tropical disturbance in the Bay of Campeche area. There is a medium (60%) chance for tropical development. An Air Force flight to investigate this system has been cancelled for today, but another flight is scheduled for tomorrow. The system is expected to move inland over the south Texas or northeast Mexico coast on Wednesday.

As this systems moves northward, rain chances will increase beginning Wednesday with continued high rain chances through Friday. Tides are already running nearly a foot above normal. Increasing southerly winds beginning Wednesday will bring a potential for coastal flooding Wednesday night through Friday.

Here are forecast highlights:

Rainfall: 1-3 inches with locally higher amounts

Tides: 1-1.5 feet above normal.

This rainfall forecast will need to be monitored this week as any additional rainfall has the potential to increase flooding along area rivers, including the Atchafalaya.

From the National Weather Service in Lake Charles:

The National Hurricane Center gives a low 20% chance for tropical development on a broad area of low pressure in the Bay of Campeche.

Long term, we are expecting increasing rain chances next week, especially in the Tuesday through Friday time frame. This has the potential to cause more problems for flooded rivers such as the Atchafalaya.

Stay tuned for updates as we head towards an active weather pattern next week.
