An upper-air disturbance moving into Louisiana this morning in advance of a cool front is giving storms to our northwest a bit of a boost. Around 9:30 a.m., the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) indicated it would likely issue a severe weather watch for much of the area outlined below:
While most of the activity is being kept in check, we will be monitoring those stronger storms you see around Alexandria that will move into portions of the area this afternoon. I still think widespread severe weather is unlikely, but a few isolated strong-to-severe storms, with hail, damaging winds, or even an isolated tornado can't be ruled out.
We'll have more through the day on WAFB...and don't forget to follow us on Twitter - @WAFBweather or @stevecaparotta
