Rain started later today, so it was hotter [ Local Stories]

Had some rough weather this afternoon fire up in the Baton Rouge area. Winds gusted to 68 mph at Tiger Stadium. Those storms died down as they moved NE. A Flash Flood Watch was posted through 7pm, but the NWS cancelled it before it expired. We just did not see heavy rainfall. The heaviest rain yesterday was in Terrebonne and Lafourche Parishes. That was the area we were most concerned with for flooding, but we did not have heavy rain there today. We still have showers moving in from the Gulf, but it is not heavy rain.

Saharan Dust is likely impacting the rain. It is a dry warm layer in the atmosphere. It is also providing lots of condensation nuclei. The moisture is condensing an the dust, and it is forming more of a cloud deck than rain.
