18 - Rob's Monday (Tropical Moisture flow) Morning Forecast

Rainfall totals for today aren't really a concern. Most of this has been south and west of metro New Orleans today.

The tropical wave/moisture has arrived as we have seen steady showers all day providing some much-needed rain for all of Acadiana as most locations have seen about a half inch but a few spots have picked up a little more than an inch helping to cut into the recent drought. In the Atlantic Basin, there still is a weak disturbance in the western Gulf of Mexico.

Orlandoans will begin their workweek with only a slight chance of rain Monday, according to the National Weather Service office in Melboune.

It was drifting at two kilometers per hour towards the north and was expected to move inland within the tropical storm warning area - between Acapulco and Chacahua lagoon in Oaxaca - by late tonight or early Sunday. Do not give up hope just yet, there is still a decent chance to get a substantial amount of water through the next few days.

Madeleine Albright slams Trump over immigration
With few powerful opposing voices remaining in the West Wing, Trump is increasingly making these decisions solo. Lost in the debate is any acknowledgement that President Obama's administration also used detention facilities.


Throughout the rest of the week, the rain chances will stick around, with the best chances being on Tuesday. Parts of the Texas Gulf Coast from Corpus Christi to Houston could see over a foot of rain by the end of the week.

The rain looks to continue even on Wednesday as the tropical wave decides to meander around South Texas instead of moving out. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 7PM for parts of southeast Texas.

The ground is waiting and ready for rainfall. That said, heavy rainfall could cause areas of brief street flooding, especially in the area that we typically need to monitor during heavy rain events.
