Before dinnertime, the coverage and intensity of the storms was gradually increasing across the region, with moisture in the air and afternoon heating. Conditions will remain favorable for storms for several hours.

A watch means conditions are favorable for severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area. Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible warnings. Severe thunderstorms can and occasionally do produce tornadoes.
