Meteorologist-in-Charge Andy Patrick said a cold front is forecasted to move through the area on Wednesday as well and this will add even more uncertainty to this forecast.

Regardless of Zeta’s track, the Weather Service is anticipating increasing rain chances Tuesday and Wednesday.

Patrick said windy conditions are expected, mainly over coastal south central Louisiana on Wednesday.
