As more heavy rain and thunderstorms pass through the area, a flash flood watch will remain in effect in parts of southeast Louisiana and southern MS until 6 a.m. Sunday (April 15), according to the National Weather Service.

Rain will arrive today and continue tonight, with up to two inches, or more, expected by Monday morning. "We're not expecting significant river flooding, but people need to be mindful of the possibility of small creek and stream flooding, and in urban or poor drainage areas where flooding is common".

About an inch of rain is forecast across Upstate New York Saturday and Sunday, and up to 3 inches more Sunday night into Tuesday.

A flash flood warning means that flash flooding is imminent or already occurring.

When it is safe to do so, please send your reports of flooding, including mudslides or flooded roads, to the National Weather Service by calling toll free at 1-866-215-4324. Residents are asked to avoid travel north of Lihue.

Due to elevated water levels, the ERCA says the City of Windsor should monitor water levels along the flood control dykes within the Little River Drain corridor.
