...Increasing risk for severe weather and isolated tornadic storms
later today...

Severe storms are expected to develop over the eastern Gulf of
Mexico ahead of a cold front and move rapidly eastward across east
central Florida from very late this afternoon and into this evening.
The strongest storms will have the potential to produce damaging
wind gusts in excess of 60 mph...hail around an inch in well as isolated tornadoes. A few strong long tracked
tornadoes are possible. Storms are expected to move quickly toward
the east northeast at 50 mph.

Residents and visitors in the area should review their emergency
plans for severe thunderstorms and tornadoes. Remain weather-aware
today into this evening...and know what to do if a warning is issued
for your area. Also...ensure you have multiple ways to receive watch
and warning information...including through NOAA Weather
Radio...your smart phone...local TV outlets...or a computer.
