BATON ROUGE- A tornado watch for the area was canceled following an evening of powerful storms Monday.

Earlier in the day, The National Weather Service issued a TORNADO WATCH for the entire WBRZ viewing area until 10 p.m. Monday.  A cold front advanced over the region, bringing a squall line of thunderstorms that had a history of producing wind damage in northern and western Louisiana.

An isolated tornado, hail, heavy downpours and lighting were predicted.

A TORNADO WATCH means conditions are favorable for severe thunderstorms to produce tornadoes, winds of 58 mph or higher and/or hail 1-inch in diameter or larger, in addition to heavy downpours and dangerous lightning. Those in and around the watch area should monitor weather information closely for possible warnings.

Following the storm, temperatures were forecast to drop quickly through the 60s while humidity will significantly lessen.
