A Soggy South Louisiana…

For three days, heavy rain pelted Acadiana in bands.  By the time the last raindrops pulled away Thursday afternoon, some locations had picked up over a foot!  Above you see the estimated rainfall totals from Doppler radar.  The highest ground-truth report is from a rain gauge in Eunice, where 12.25″ had fallen by 8 AM.  The pink-shaded area represents 9-10″, while the purple-shaded area represents 10-12″ and the white-shaded areas indicate 12″ +.  In addition to the heavy rain, we saw a brief, isolated tornado strike Breaux Bridge around 5:30 AM.  Below you can see the details.  More heavy rain is possible on Sunday.
