    For the rest today, the rain chances remain high at 70% through the afternoon. Through most of the afternoon, there will not be much rain. But by this evening, more rain will move across Southwest Louisiana. There is a Flash Flood Watch in effect for Calcasieu, and western Cameron Parishes. That means we could see some heavy rainfall later this evening. However, there is a little bit of disagreement with the high-resolution models.
