Tornado watch in effect
A tornado watch is in effect for the western side of the area now until 7 PM Thursday. Storms will continue to increase in coverage from the west as they move in.
A tornado watch means conditions are favorable for storms with isolated tornadoes and strong damaging winds. Most likely we will see a strong line of storms this afternoon with a few isolated tornado warnings embedded within that line.
Stay aware of weather conditions through the day. If a warning is issued for your area take shelter immediately.
