This could be a worst-case scenario for this area, but there is still some time to fine-tune the forecast.
Most reliable forecast models have the system moving into the coast of Louisiana, but how bad this storm will be for New Orleans is dependent upon where its center comes ashore.
Louisiana and the central and northern Gulf Coast from Upper Texas to the Florida Panhandle should monitor forecast updates over the next several days as surge, wind and flooding impacts could arrive in the timeframe from Sunday to Monday.
A stalled frontal boundary will set the stage for several rounds of severe weather across the Midwest this evening through Saturday.
Damaging winds and heavy downpours and flooding are the primary concerns, but some large hail and an isolated tornado are also possible.
