A tornado watch is in effect Tuesday afternoon until 3 p.m. for central and northeast Florida counties as a line of storms makes its way across the state. The National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center issued the tornado watch Tuesday for Flagler, Marion, Orange, Osceola, Seminole, St. Johns and Volusia counties. In its Impact Weather Statement Tuesday mid-morning, the National Weather Service in Melbourne said, “A few embedded strong storms will be capable of producing wind gusts in excess of 50 mph as this line moves to the east at 30 to 35 mph. The threat for rotating storms and a brief tornado continues across these areas.“ National Weather Service radar sites in Florida showed the line of storms moving over an area from Palm Coast to Daytona Beach shortly before 12:30 p.m. Tuesday. There is also a small craft advisory in effect for coastal waters Tuesday until 10 p.m.
