Some rain on the radar this afternoon

Despite conditions that do not favorably support showers for today, we are seeing a few isolated moderate to heavy rain showers across parts of the area this morning.

These showers have been mainly confined to the coastal areas with a few that have moved further north into parts of Calcasieu and even Beauregard parishes.

These showers are very small in size and are forming and raining themselves out with really no forward movement in direction. Therefore, if you are fortunate enough to be under one of these isolated showers, it may rain for awhile.

This was as a result of very rich tropical air that moved in overnight with just enough lift to support the development of the rain.

Most of this activity should begin to dissipate this afternoon but a few isolated afternoon showers are still possible.
