Locally our main weather threat is heavy rain. Some places along and south of the I-10 corridor of southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana could see 4-6 inches through Sunday.
Tides are running almost one foot above normal. This could increase to over one foot by Thursday or Friday and a coastal flood advisory may be needed.
