First "Irene" Tornado Watch Issued...

The SPC in Normanhas just issued a Tornado Watch for portions of far eastern North Carolina, including the Outer Banks, valid until 5am EDT Saturday.

Tornadoes often occur in association with tropical systems, due to the warm, buoyant, tropical air and copious amounts of rotation associated with the system.  Tropically-induced tornadoes are usually rather weak and short lived.
