Strong to Severe Storms Possible Today

A Tornado Watch has been posted for much of the WAFB viewing area through 6 p.m. this evening.

An approaching cold front will produce numerous showers and t-storms today, with the main action expected to arrive in metro Baton Rouge near or shortly after lunchtime. You can see that computer model guidance is in good agreement with this scenario, showing the main line moving into Baton Rouge roughly around 1 p.m.

The primary threats from any strong storms will be large hail and damaging winds, but an isolated tornado can't be ruled out.

Storms should end from west-to-east by late afternoon into early evening as the cold front moves eastward.

Stay with the WAFB First Alert Storm Team on air and online for updates as needed through the day. If you witness any severe weather, relay your reports to us by sending pictures and/or video to or through our Facebook and Twitter accounts.
