The National Weather Service has issued a TORNADO WATCH for the entire WBRZ Weather Forecast Area until 2am Thursday. TORNADO WATCH means conditions are favorable for tornadoes and/or damaging winds in and around the watch area. Be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible warnings. If a tornado warning is issued, seek shelter in a low-level, interior room of a sturdy building. Take pets (on a leash) with you, have on hard-soled shoes, monitor storm coverage on a wireless device and cover your head in the event of wind or tornado impact.

According to the Storm Prediction Center, a line of thunderstorms is intensifying from southeast Texas into central Louisiana.  These storms will track across the watch area this evening and tonight, posing a risk of locally damaging wind gusts and perhaps a tornado or two.
