A rare tornado watch is in effect for Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Chester and Delaware counties, the National Weather Service said on Monday afternoon.

The tornado watch extends until 7 p.m. or about an hour before Monday night's NFL game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Seattle Seahawks at Lincoln Financial Field.

Fans were not allowed to attend due to COVID-19 restrictions, but the game was aired live by ESPN. 

The Eagles are 3-6-1 and the Seahawks are 7-3.
