A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for our northern counties.
A watch means that conditions are favorable for severe weather to occur.
The watch lasts until 6pm tonight for all counties highlighted in light red.
Storms that reach severe limits may include damaging winds, large hail, and heavy downpours.
A slight risk for a tornado is also a possibility.
Stay with NBC25 for continuous updates as I continue to monitor the situation.
