The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 6 PM for much of the WBRZ viewing area.
Thunderstorms are developing all around Southeast Louisiana ahead of a squall line. The squall line is moving to the southeast and will move through Baton Rouge during the mid afternoon. The storms could produce damaging winds around 60 mph along with large hail and even a few tornadoes. However, the tornado threat is low today. On top of that, heavy rain will also be likely. High temperatures will be around 90.
The storms will continue into the evening hours and could still be strong to severe. Otherwise, it will be mostly cloudy with temperatures in the upper 70s to lower 80s.
A few showers and storms will linger tonight around Southeast Louisiana as the cold front moves through the state. When it is not raining, we will have partly to mostly cloudy skies with low temperatures in the upper 60s.
