Now at Noon: Tornado Watch, Violence Awareness March, VA campaign trail

A tornado watch is in effect for Central Virginia until 7 p.m. today. The NBC12 First Warning Weather team is following the storms and will have the latest forecast.

There is a march this weekend to bring awareness about violence against woman. But there is mixed reaction to its name - it's called "Slutwalk Richmond." Ashley Monfort is at Monroe Park with more on what this walk is all about.

And campaigning continues in Virginia - Paul Ryan's focus today will be on Newport News, while President Obama will hold a grassroots rally in Woodbridge, on Friday.

Those stories and much more coming up on 12News at Noon and streaming live on
