BATON ROUGE - The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for most of the Baton Rouge area until 7 p.m.  A Tornado watch means that conditions are favorable for the development of tornadoes in severe thunderstorms at any time.

The main threats from any severe thunderstorms this afternoon into the evening, aside from tornadic potential, will be in the form of damaging straight line wind and potentially some hail.

Parishes included in the watch include Ascension, Assumption, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville, Jefferson, Lafourche, Livingston, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. Helena, St. James, St. John the Baptist, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, Terrebonne, Washington, and West Baton Rouge in Louisiana and Pike and Amite Counties in Mississippi.  Areas added to the tornado watch include Point Coupee & West Feliciana Parishes in Louisiana and Wilkinson County in Mississippi.

More updates will be coming throughout the day here on WBRZ.com, the WBRZ weather channel (COX cable channel 18) and tonight starting on News 2 at 4.
