Tornado Watch Until 9 PM

A Tornado Watch has been posted for much of the WAFB viewing area through 9 p.m. tonight.

The latest radar view at 2:35 p.m. shows a nasty squall line moving out of east Texas into western Louisiana. There have recently been reports of possible tornadoes and funnel clouds in Beauregard and Vernon parishes.

The main squall line won't impact most WAFB viewing areas until at least this evening. However, if you look at the image above, note that we're starting to see showers and a few storms well in advance of the main line. We'll be closely monitoring these through the afternoon to see if they intensify and possibly turn severe.

We'll have updates on WAFB as needed this afternoon, and of course much more on 9News at 5 and 6.
