We are now seeing showers and storms popping up across the area.

There is a Flood Watch in effect for Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco, Hernando and Citrus counties until 11 p.m. tonight because rainfall could be heavy at times today and that combined with the recent rains could cause some minor flooding.
