Morning convection over Louisiana produced heavy rainfall and damaging wind gusts across the state. Given the flood threat, WPC had requested a 1-min sector over the region. GOES-16 1-min VIS/IR sandwich image combo at sunrise showed persistent bubbling, and cold, storm tops (Fig 1).
GOES-16 (instantaneous) rainfall rate derived product captured the heaviest rain producing storms as they advanced east across the state (Fig 2).
