The National Weather Service in Lake Charles is expecting increasing rain chances heading into the weekend, with above normal temperatures.

The heaviest rain will be on Sunday and Monday, with two to four inches of rain expected. Street flooding could be a problem during periods of heavy rain. There is also a small threat for strong to severe storms on Monday or Tuesday, depending on the track of the low pressure area in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico.
Due to the strong east to southeast winds in the Gulf, tides will continue to run one to one and a half foot above normal. During high tide, expect to see minor coastal flooding. A coastal flood advisory is in effect and will likely continue through the weekend.
