A Tornado Watch is in effect for most of Central Ohio until 9 p.m. , ABC6/FOX28’s Chief Meteorologist Bill Kelly reports. A Tornado Watch is issued when weather conditions are favorable for the development of severe thunderstorms that are capable of producing tornadoes. A Tornado Warning is an alert issued by weather services to warn that severe thunderstorms with tornadoes may be imminent. It can be issued after a tornado or funnel cloud has been spotted by the public, storm chasers, emergency management or law enforcement, or more commonly if there are radar indications of tornado formation.
The storms could move into Franklin County at 6:45pm
