The cold front responsible for the precipitation will advance through the coastal waters this evening turning winds offshore as it does so. Precipitation will remain widespread Friday as an upper level trof swings through the area and again on Saturday as a second cold front pushes through the region. Drier conditions will develop Sunday through early next week.

UPDATE...The threat of severe weather has diminished and the severe thunderstorm watch that was in effect for portions of SW LA and SE TX has been cancelled.

Areas of light to moderate rain still remain over the region and occasional thunderstorms will remain possible.

Precipitation has been widespread through much of the day, but rainfall rates and accumulations have been manageable in the one to two inch range and no flooding has been reported anywhere across the region. The frontal boundary responsible continues to work its way toward the coast this afternoon with short range guidance indicating a broad band of showers and thunderstorms continuing along and south of the I-10 corridor over the next few hours before becoming more isolated late this evening.

A severe thunderstorm watch, which was issued earlier this afternoon, remains in effect until 8 pm for Jefferson and Orange counties as well as Calcasieu and Cameron parishes where better heating has resulted in more substantial instability. Large hail is the most likely severe threat although some storms could produce damaging winds.

The frontal boundary isn't expected to make it too far offshore before stalling and it's proximity combined with another weak, upper level disturbance traversing the area beginning early tomorrow morning will serve as a focus for another round of widespread showers. The Flash Flood Watch continues until noon tomorrow as the loss of upper level support should allow convection to wane during the afternoon.

A second, more progressive cold front is still forecast to swing through the region Saturday and although another round of convection will accompany the front, it should also be deep enough to push some of the low level moisture out into the gulf allowing for drier conditions Sunday through early next week.
