Current radar as of 8:44 AM CDT shows a line of storms moving past the Baton Rouge metro into the more eastern parishes in the viewing area. The line is moving rather quickly, so rain totals are not expected to be high.

The Storm Prediction Center continues to have most of the Baton Rouge coverage area under a Marginal Risk (level 1 out of 5) for severe weather Tuesday morning.

Potential Threats: Damaging wind gusts will be the main concern, but a brief tornado and hail cannot be ruled out. Flooding is not a concern. Rain totals should be less than half an inch. Some areas may not even see much rain, if at all.

Timing: The line will move through our area from west to east. It will clear the area by the afternoon with clouds beginning to clear out by early evening.

How to Prepare: Be sure you have ways to receive weather alerts. Secure any loose outdoor Halloween decor. Plan accordingly for your morning and mid-morning commutes. Rainy weather may only last one to three hours.
