A TORNADO WATCH has been issued for Leon, Milam, and Robertson Counties until 5:00am Monday morning. A line of strong to severe thunderstorms is on its way to the Brazos Valley and should arrive between 2 and 3 am. Heavy rain, frequent lightning, and winds above 50 mph are our main concerns. However, an isolated tornado, especially in our northern counties, cannot be ruled out.
