The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for all six coastal counties. It remain in effect until 2:00 Tuesday afternoon. A line of severe storms producing tornadoes is currently in Louisiana. It's moving east. That's why South Mississippi is in the watch area. The watch means conditions could be favorable for potential development.

WLOX First Alert meteorologist Wesley Williams is analyzing the changing weather conditions. He'll be on Facebook Live throughout the morning to keep you updated on any weather news that impacts your neighborhood. Right now, his advice is, "Have a plan in place because we're under a tornado watch, so you can put that plan in action if we go under a warning."
