Doppler radar makes it easy to see why that area is dealing with serious flooding, with estimates that 10" to 12" or more of rain has occurred since late last night. In fact, a USGS rain gauge at Bayou Vermilion near Carencro reported over 10 inches of rain in just 6 hours!

The duration of heavy rains is very difficult to forecast in events like these with 'training' storms, but I definitely think some street flooding will be possible as we head into the early afternoon hours. Additionally, an isolated severe storm is possible. In fact, as of this writing, the storm approaching Iberville Parish in the image above is showing some rotation.
We will be monitoring developments throughout the day and will bring you any updates as needed. In the meantime, be sure to follow the rains with our Interactive Radar. Also, don't forget to download our Titan9 weather app for your smartphone: WAFB Apps
