Tornado Watch in effect through Tuesday morning
A squall line will move in from the north before 11 a.m.
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A Tornado Watch has been issued for the entire FOX 8 viewing area Tuesday until 11 a.m.
A squall line will move into the region in the later morning hours, bringing the risk for damaging winds or a tornado. This line will be weakening on approach, with the greater risk area being north of I-10/I-12. As the line slows to a crawl and weakens, the threat for heavy rainfall will increase across northern locations. A few storms will impact places farther south, but the entire line is unlikely to make it to the coast.
By Tuesday afternoon, things should start quieting down, with just some lingering rain possible. It will be quite warm and humid today. Highs will hit the lower 80s, with some peeks of sun later.
Wednesday will be hot, as highs soar into the upper 80s just ahead of a strong cold front. Rain chances will be low with the frontal passage.
A beautiful run of weather is on the way from Thursday through next weekend. A spring chill will return to the area as a strong breeze builds and temperatures take a dive. Highs will be falling back into the 60s, with lows dipping into the 30s and 40s.
