Tornado Watch Issued for Northern Counties
The farther north you go the better chance of severe weather. Those words still hold true and the Storm Prediction Center has issued a tornado watch until 7 p.m. EDT for Benton, Newton, and Jasper Counties. There is also a tornado watch until 10 p.m. for White, Cass, Miami, Pulaski, and Fulton Counties. A line of thunderstorms continues to slowly develop in Illinois. There have been a few rain showers around the area. The main line of thunderstorms may come sooner than later. Have that safety plan ready to go for the remainder of the afternoon and this evening.
