The National Weather Service in Tallahassee is continuing to monitor the potential for severe weather across the region on Thursday, April 5th.
At this time, we are not anticipating a widespread severe weather event, however, a few of our computer models are indicating increased severe risk as an upper level disturbance moves through the Southeast.
While instability will be moderately high with this event, wind shear is not predicted to be especially strong. As a result, the primary expected risk at this time is for damaging wind gusts and large hail. Isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out, but are not anticipated to be the main risk with this system.
Preliminary timing graphics are attached to this email. Note that some areas are depicted in the strong/severe risk area for most of the day.
This indicates a combination of the uncertainty remaining with this event and the possibility of more than one round of severe storms in any one location.
We will continue to monitor this situation closely over the next couple of days. Should the threat for severe weather increase, a full briefing packet or webinar will be provided on Wednesday afternoon.
As always, if you have any questions, please give our office a call at 850-942-8833 and ask to speak to one of our meteorologists.
