Locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds will be possible inside any bands that develop over our area from Laura Wednesday and Thursday. Gusty winds will be possible along the Louisiana coastal areas and in our westernmost parishes. Brief, short-lived tornadoes are possible within any bands that develop mainly Thursday.
