SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Welcome rainfall returned to start off the week and more is on the way. We could see too much of a good thing though with Flash Flood Watches in effect for much of the area through Tuesday evening.

Rain will continue to fall tonight with locally heavy downpours possible in some areas. Pay attention to the road and if you come across any flooded roadways, do NOT drive through them. Lows tonight will drop to the low-70s with the rain continuing.

More showers are expected tomorrow with the majority of the widespread showers looking to happen during the morning and midday hours. Turning more scattered by the afternoon, this will be another decent amount of rainfall falling on a very dry area that is absorbing moisture slowly. The dry conditions up to this point are a large reason for the flooding issues we are seeing. Highs tomorrow may reach the low-80s, depending on the amount of sunshine. Lows tomorrow night are similar, low to mid-70s.

Rain chances continue into Wednesday but start dwindling. By the weekend we are looking to get back into the upper-80s and low-90s again. The weekend is looking mainly dry with only isolated showers and storms expected, a summer-type situation.
