MANATEE -- Manatee, Sarasota and other portions of the Tampa Bay region are under a flood watch until Saturday evening, according to the National Weather Service.
The Weather Service said a trough of low pressure will be draped across the region and will bring heavy rainfall with 4 to 6 inches of accumulation, which may produce urban flooding.
