Several Parishes Under Flash Flood Watch

MadisonElizabethx /

Four parishes in northwest Louisiana, Bossier, Caddo, Claiborne and Webster, are under a flash flood watch through Thursday morning.  Forecaster Brandi Hughes, with the National Weather Service in Shreveport says several inches of rain are possible.


Hughes says that storms could bring around "four to six inches" of rainfall. 


And more rain could be coming.  Hughes says the long range forecast looks wet for the next several days, which could add to already swollen creeks and rivers.


Additional rain can be expected in the future. Hughes says that a "wet pattern" can be expected over the next "seven to ten days."


Officials warn some low water bridges and roadways could become flooded.  Hughes says if you see water covering the roadway, stay away.


Hughes instructs to avoid dangerous roadways even if you have a large vehicle.


Temperatures are expected to remain mild through the period.
