UPDATE: The tornado watch has been canceled.
A tornado watch has been issued for the entire Tampa Bay area until noon Saturday.
The watch extends to Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas and Sarasota counties.
A tornado watch means tornadoes are possible in the affected areas. Be ready to seek shelter quickly if a warning is issued or if you believe a tornado is approaching you.
There may be more watches and warnings as Tropical Storm Nestor inches closer.
