For those who have donated to my site, your help has been greatly appreciated. For those not aware, donations to my site help me offset my personal out of pocket expenses…such as some of the model maps you view on here, are only available due to my subscription to the corresponding site. The F5 Data maps I post, also another out of pocket expense (monthly subscription). Updates to software (weather related), and costs for my domain name are also out of pocket to me. Any help you provide is immensely appreciated! Although it may seem I am not here and working in support of your donation, I have to work my forecasting time around my ever changing work schedule.
Good day everyone!
The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has designated a MARGINAL risk of Severe Thunderstorms for portions of Central and South Florida.
Some storms have already rolled through the peninsula during the early morning hours. However, the SPC outlook indicates, with any breaks in cloud cover, insolation over portions of the risk area may allow for destabilization during the afternoon and early evening hours. Based on information in the SPC outlook, low level shear will weaken with the passage of the aforementioned storms, but with surface dew points forecast to be in the 60-70F range, increasing low level WAA (Warm Air Advection), and a strong upper level jetstreak (120-130 kts) forecast over the area, shear should be sufficient for rotation of some thunderstorm cells, thus providing the slight probability of isolated tornado activity for this afternoon and early evening.
I have already received 1.47″ of rain in the past 24 hours, ending at 7:00 a.m. this morning.
The SPC has also designated a MARGINAL risk in the DAY 2 outlook for a portion of SE Florida
