    A tornado watch for the area expired at 10 p.m.

    Many parts of the area are already soggy thanks to overnight rain. Storm Team4 meteorologist Amelia Segal said some areas got an inch to 2 inches of rain overnight. The morning rain cleared out at about 7 a.m., making way for sunshine and high temperatures about 80 degrees.
