Severe thunderstorm watch until 2 PM
The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for the entire WBRZ viewing area until 2:00 PM. A watch means that severe weather is possible in the watch area.
There is a large area of thunderstorms over North Louisiana and Central Mississippi that is heading to the south. It will tap into a very unstable atmosphere and this could lead to some severe weather this morning and into the afternoon hours. These storms could produce damaging winds, large hail and have heavy rain.
