BATON ROUGE, La (FOX44) - Flash flooding caused by inclement weather has affected Baton Rouge and surrounding areas.

The flooding is a mix of the torrential downpour the area received since the morning and the saturation caused by storms last weekend. The area has already received 2-3 inches of rainfall today alone.

There is a flash flood watch in effect for the entire FOX44 viewing area until Wednesday afternoon. Isolated areas may experience 4-6 inches, with rain amounts of 2-3 inches falling across southern Louisiana.

Stay tuned to FOX44 for weather updates as they occur.
