BATON ROUGE, La. (NBC33) — The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has placed south Louisiana under a "Slight Risk" of severe weather Monday.
The main threats will be heavy rain and gusty wind. However, small hail and isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.
As the cold front sags southward, storms will arrive from northwest to southeast within Louisiana. The Capitol area's highest chance of thunderstorms will increase during the afternoon into evening.
Stay aware of the forecast over the next 24-hours. A tornado or severe thunderstorm watch may be issued in our area.
A watch means conditions are favorable for severe storms to occur within a few hours. This gives you time to prepare for severe storms.
A warning means it is actually occurring or will occur within minutes. You should seek shelter immediately in the lowest level and inner-most part of your home or building.
After the strong to severe storms move through on Monday. Temperatures will plummet on Tuesday. Patchy frost could even form Tuesday night, so you may want to think about bringing in your temperature sensitive potted plates or covering your Spring flower beds with an old blanket.
