SUMMARY...A squall line will continue steadily east-northeastward

damage and some tornado risk.

north and south of a line from 40 miles north of Lafayette LA to 60
miles east northeast of Mc Comb MS. For a complete depiction of the
watch see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU8).


REMEMBER...A Tornado Watch means conditions are favorable for
tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch
area. Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for
threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements
and possible warnings.



AVIATION...Tornadoes and a few severe thunderstorms with hail
surface and aloft to 1 inch. Extreme turbulence and surface wind
gusts to 60 knots. A few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 500. Mean
storm motion vector 23035.
