With all the Pacific Storms brewing and other State flooding, a few details to note:

A couple of rounds of rainfall starting this evening and finally clearing out during the day Thursday. Impacts are expected to be minimal, although saturated soils may create poor drainage in low areas and delay the fall of some rivers already running high.

A leading impulse responsible for today's clouds will increase rain chances through this evening and continue into Tuesday. While rainfall is not expected to be heavy, we could have a wet commute in the morning with water on some roadways.

A stronger wave of moisture, associated with the remnants of hurricane Willa now approaching the northwest coast of Mexico, will cross the region Wednesday into Thursday, bringing more rain and a chance of thunderstorms. Area-wide, we expect anywhere from 2-3 inches of rain between tonight and Thursday- most of it with the mid-week impulse. It is not out of the question for isolated totals in the 4 inch range south of I-10 depending on how the system evolves.

Please always be PREPARED, Stay SAFE.

Homeowner's Guide to the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program
Following a Presidential major disaster declaration, the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) helps communities implement hazard mitigation measures to reduce the risk of physical and social impacts from future disasters. While homeowner’s cannot apply directly for HMGP funding, local communities can sponsor applications on behalf of homeowners and apply to the states, territory, or tribal governments. Check out our Homeowner’s Guide to HMGP for more information.

Showers and thunderstorms will be developing over the Gulf Saturday morning and then spreading inland throughout the morning. Storms will be slow moving and capable of a quick 1 to 2 inches of rainfall and some flooding is possible. Isolated totals could reach 5 inches between early Saturday morning and Sunday. Street flooding should be the main threat.

Stay Safe, Prepared and have a great weekend.

Office of Emergency Management

National Weather Service Update:

• Very little change since yesterday. Disturbance in Gulf still weak and disorganized. Now a 50% chance of development into a depression (lowered from yesterday). Main impacts from this system should be down the coast.
• Flash Flood Watch remains in effect today for coastal areas that have had most significant rainfall past few days. Additional rainfall could lead to flash flooding.
• Still expect periods of rain, thunderstorms into Saturday much as we’ve seen the past week or so especially coastal areas.
• With weaker storm scenario and track well south of forecast area expect only minor rises in tides, seas, little effect on winds.
• Continuous monitoring of TS Isaac will continue, it is too early to determine where it is headed.
