A tornado watch has been issued over Cache Valley, said Tom Gentry of the National Weather Service.

A “super-cell” — the first sign of a tornado forming — was spotted over the Great Salt Lake this morning, Gentry said.

Cache Valley is currently experiencing weather conditions — with a layer of warm air on top of a colder layer of air — conducive to tornado formation, Gentry said, which is why a tornado watch has been issued.

While Gentry said a tornado in the area is possible — citing the tornado that struck Salt Lake City 12 years ago — it is very unlikely.
