The line of storms with a cold front that triggered severe weather fears for Southeast Louisiana pushed through after 11:00am without severe impacts.

"The line doesn't look severe at this time," the National Weather Service said on Twitter.  

Forecasters allowed all warnings to expire at 11:15am.

They warned however of continued rainfall and gusty conditions.

"Wind gusts up to 50 mph still possible along the line as well as heavy rainfall. Tornado Watch remains in effect ."

That Tornado Watch ends at 2:00pm.

The Flash Flood Watch expires at 1:00am.

There could still be some localized street flooding in low lying areas and under heavy cells.
