Iberia Parish FYI from the National Weather Service on Tropical Storm Gordon:

Gordon is expected to make landfall late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning between extreme southeast Louisiana and the Mississippi/Alabama state line. Gordon is expected to be a category one hurricane before landfall.

For our region, we still have a heavy rain and flooding threat now through Tuesday morning. One to three inches of rain is expected, with locally higher amounts. This is thanks to a mid level low pressure area over northeast Texas. Tuesday will see less rain, before a potential heavy rain threat increases again Wednesday through Friday.

It is too early to say exactly where any rainbands will be set up Wednesday through Friday. These rainbands are typically 20 to 30 miles wide and can extend over 100 miles long. These rainbands will be focused areas where flooding could occur, as well as isolated tornadoes and gusty winds of 40 mph.

At the coast, tides will run a foot above normal this week. Minor coastal flooding is possible during periods of high tides.
