TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The tornado watch that covered several local counties has been discontinued as of 2:20 p.m. Monday.

A weaker line of heavy rain and thunderstorms will cross through eastern Big Bend and Suwannee River counties through the late afternoon time frame. These can kick up wind gusts around 40 mph, especially near the coast, with passing bouts of downpours and occasional lightning.

The chance for additional severe thunderstorms is low, but not zero. However, a new tornado watch is not being considered at this time.

We will keep you updated on air and online through this storm system. We will be live on air for any tornado warnings issued and keep you updated on our social media pages as well.
