Tornado Watch Issued for our Area
The National Weather Service has issued a Tornado Watch for our area including the LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans campuses until 5:00 a.m. Monday morning. Louisiana Parishes included are Ascension, Assumption, Jefferson, Lafourche, Livingston, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. James, St. John the Baptist, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, Terrebonne and Washington.
A slight risk of severe weather remains across the entire region as scattered thunderstorms impact the area along and ahead of a cold front moving through this evening. The main threat from any severe thunderstorms will be damaging wind gusts. However, tornadoes will also be possible.
A Wind Advisory has also been issued for our area from 6:00 a.m. through 6:00 p.m. Monday evening. North winds 20-30 mph with gusts up to 35 mph are forecast.
A Wind Advisory means that winds of 26 to 39 mph are expected. Winds this strong can make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles. Use extra caution.
