Tornado Watch in effect until 5 p.m. for Sarasota, Manatee and Hardee Counties today. A line of intense storms is developing in the Gulf of Mexico. These storms are expected to move onshore later this afternoon. They will bring heavy rain, small hail, gusty winds and the small chance for brief isolated tornadoes. Again the National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for parts of our viewing area.
