Tracking A Stormy Middle of the Week

Showers and storms are blossoming in southern counties as a direct result of the lower pressure. We’ve had building cumulus the last few days, but not enough low pressure to see them become showers or storms. That changed today. Heavy rain and gusty winds are being produced from isolated clusters of strong storms.

We’ll see mostly isolated to scattered coverage for today. Tomorrow, and each day until the weekend, brings a little more coverage as pressure lowers further, and moisture ramps up. A low moving onshore near the Florida Panhandle is pushing moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic into the Southeast. That moisture will be trapped and will be enough fuel to really get some decent rounds of showers going each day. Stronger showers and storms will form mainly in the afternoons/evening from the maximum heating of the day. Use caution and head indoors if you hear thunder.
