Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 10 AM
SPC has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 10 AM for all of the WBRZ Viewing area!
Storms have developed over Texas and raced into Louisiana overnight. These storms have a history of being severe in Texas and Western Louisiana with large hail and damaging winds. That trend will continue across the Baton Rouge area and all of Southeast Louisiana until 10 AM.
Additionally, heavy rain is expected, and we could pick up a few inches of rain. Due to this, the NWS in Slidell, has issued a Flash Flood Watch from 7 AM until Saturday Night. Thanks to the rain we had last weekend the ground is still very saturated. Any rain that falls today will likely run off and fill streams, creeks, drainage ditches and eventually local rivers. Flash flooding could happen very quickly this morning and again on Saturday. Remember DO NOT drive through flooded roadways! It only takes 2 feet of water to float a car! Turn around, Don't Drown!
