Reports of roadway flooding, down trees severe weather moves across the Upstate

In its storm update Saturday afternoon, the National Weather Service said much of MI is now in a lull between rounds of snowy and icy weather, with the second wave of precipitation beginning tonight and lasting through Sunday. The state also experienced an outbreak of 10 tornadoes on June 14, 2017, across Shawano, Winnebago, Outagamie, Brown and Waushara counties.

A watch means the conditions are right for a tornado to potentially form, but one has not been spotted yet.

The National Weather Service issues tornado watches when tornadoes are possible in or near an area because of the weather conditions. There was also a report of a tree on a home in Baton Rouge.

The area will experience showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 2 p.m.

The watch will be issued at 1:00 pm and the warnings will be issued at 1:45 pm. Some of the storms could be severe and produce heavy rainfall.

Closer to the metro area, a tornado in Copiah County seventeen miles southwest of Hazlehurst roared its way through the county for a little over two miles.

The possibility of tornadoes or hail are listed as low, but with the enhanced risk, isolated tornadoes can not be ruled out.

Storms ripped through much of Louisiana on Saturday, and forecasters indicated a tornado might have been the cause of damage in the Baton Rouge area.

By 4 a.m. Saturday, most of the thunderstorm activity and the threat of severe weather will be confined to the southeastern corner of the ArkLaTex.

We will continue to update this story as the forecast changes.
