Tornado Watch for Parts of the Deep South...

A Tornado Watch has been issued for much of the southeast half of Louisiana and a large part of Mississippi. It is valid until 1pm CST today.

A large area of shower and thunderstorm activity is moving slowly East across the region this morning.  Stronger storms are located along the leading edge of the complex.  

In this type of situation, brief tornado touch-downs are possible with some of the stronger activity.

A threat of severe weather will spread Eastward across much of the southeast today, as indicated by the yellow shaded area on the image below:

Strong, gusty thunderstorm winds are the main threat with activity today, however isolated, generally brief, tornadoes are also possible with stronger storms.
