CAPE CORAL, Fla. - A Tornado Watch was in effect for DeSoto, Charlotte and Lee counties until 11 p.m., but has been canceled, as a slow moving line of showers and thunderstorms in the Gulf of Mexico will move slowly into Southwest Florida later tonight and Tuesday morning.

There is a chance some of the storms will contain wind gusts in excess of 50 mph.  Rain amouts of over 1/2 are also possible.

It has been a very windy day ahead of this system, with wind guys at 33 MPH at SWFIA, 36 MPH at Page Field, and 37 MPH in Naples.
