As the line of thunderstorms continues to intensify as it moves through the region, the local forecast office of the National Weather Service issues a Tornado Watch for the area.

At 3:08PM, meteorologists at the local forecast office of the National Weather Service identify a thunderstorm on their Doppler weather radar capable of producing a tornado. They immediately issue a Tornado Warning.
