Wednesday Harvey Update… The impact from Harvey has finally arrived to the area. As many of you have followed along the past few days, I wasn’t not expecting much until today and Harvey seems to be delivering.
Thanks to what is projected as a more northeasterly course, the heaviest rain has been shifting more to the east. The bad news is that we still may see some high amounts in the Toledo Bend area over into Sabine, Natchitoches, and Red River parishes.
Some isolated amounts still could get up to 7-10 inches if the system continues to move slowly and if the rain bands set up the right way. In other locations where rain is expected, including east Texas and into northwest Louisiana and south Arkansas, rainfall amounts will likely range from 2-4 inches.
The best chances for rain will be continue through and tonight. We do have a flash flood watch today. Based on current projections, I am hoping we don’t have too many issues. However, don’t let your guard down.
That can change. If you are in areas along Toledo Bend and then east into Natchitoches parish, you need to monitor changing weather conditions. Those are the areas I am the most concerned about. patrick
