UPDATED RAINFALL FORECAST FOR OVERNIGHT TONIGHT:
After looking over the latest computer model data; I'm now calling for a 40% chance of scattered showers and t-storms beginning around 2AM and lasting possibly through 8AM on Monday due to a t-storm complex ongoing in Texas. Also from influence from our "cool" front, still set to sweep through by Monday morning!

NATIONWIDE BOYCOTT OF LOUISIANA FOR KEEPING BLACK MAN IN PRISON FOR LIFE: Wayne Bryant has served 20 years of a life sentence in prison for stealing hedge clippers. He should be pardoned immediately by the Louisiana Governor. The Louisiana Supreme Court refused to hear his appeal because of five Caucasian judges who refused to correct this egregious error. The NAACP should call for a nationwide boycott of Louisiana until Wayne Bryant is released. All financial business in Louisiana should Cease and Desist. All entertainers and sports venues should refuse to enter Louisiana. The casinos should also lose all business. Any support of Louisiana defies support of the nationwide outcry of the Black Lives Matter Movement. #BOYCOTTLOUISIANA
××Please Share WAKE UP LOUISIANA AND AMERICA: #FreeWayneBryant These five Louisiana Supreme Court Justices have an African American man, Wayne Bryant, spending life in prison for taking hedge clippers based on antiquated slave laws or " pig laws." He has been in prison for 20 years and they denied his appeal. These Judges should be impeached or recalled in accordance with Louisiana laws. The process should start immediately and protests should occur daily to free WAYNE BRYANT! #FeeeWayneBryant
