NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A line of thunderstorms has moved into western Louisiana bringing rain and fog.

As the system moves east, forecasters have placed an area from Baton Rouge across the parishes north of Lake Pontchartrain in an area of moderate risk for a few strong thunderstorms, with the possibly of an isolated tornado, strong winds and heavy rain.

Louisiana Commissioner of Administration Jay Dardenne is closing government offices in 15 parishes at noon before Tuesday’s severe weather arrives.

The parishes included in the closures:

Ascension, Assumption, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville, Lafourche, Livingston, Pointe Coupee, St. Helena, St. John the Baptist, St. Tammany, Washington, West Baton Rouge, West Feliciana.

Schools in most of those parishes are also close for the day.
