According to Roger Erickson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Lake Charles office, the potential area impacts of Tropical Depression 9 include:
Rain: 5 to 10 inches, with 15 inches possible in some areas.
Tides: Coastal tides running 3-4 feet above normal tonight and Thursday.
Winds: Tornado threat mainly in the daytime hours, Wednesday afternoon and Thursday.
"This system is expected to be picked up by a cold front by Friday and lift out of our region," Erickson said in an e-mail. "If the front misses the tropical depression, the above impacts could last longer than just today and Thursday ... could extend into Friday as well."
