The National Weather Service has issued a Tornado Watch for much of northwest Louisiana, including Bossier Parish.

Forecasters say severe storms are likely Tuesday over parts of Louisiana with the heaviest rain fall coming from a squall line as it moves east across the area. Isolated tornadoes are possible along with damaging wind gusts, according to forecasters.

Given the already saturated grounds in place, localized flash flooding will be possible. As a result, a Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 12 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 18. Total accumulations will range from 1 to 4 inches across the area.
