After Monday night's severe storms produced a deadly and destructive tornado in Alabama, we're still monitoring the frontal boundary that produced these storms that will continue to bring heavy rain, a wind threat, and a tornado threat to the Southeastern United States through Wednesday.

Severe Outlook

Wednesday

As we track this system into Wednesday, there is an additional risk for thunderstorms across the Southeast, with potential for severe storms around the Big Bend of Florida into Southeast Georgia . This is a marginal risk (level 1, on a scale of 1 to 5) in the warm sector of our frontal boundary. We may see some isolated damaging wind gusts and the possibility of a tornado or two.

Forecast

A frontal-boundary moving to the southeast across the region will provide somewhat limited energy in a environment with good wind shear. This should lead to a line of storms with a few isolated severe cells. The I-10 and I-75 corridors could be impacted earlier in the day, while areas closer to I-95 will likely see potential impacts in the middle to late afternoon.  

Forecast Accumulation

Rainfall totals have already been impressive along the Gulf Coast of Florida, some already topping off at 3-4" and an additional 1-2" is still possible across the Southeast. For the latest updates on the severe weather potential be sure to tune into WeatherNation.
