Well, looky here.......we got us something to do !!!

Updated HWO Tallahassee @ 1030am Wednesday, April 11th:

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT
A WEAK COLD FRONT WILL APPROACH THE REGION FROM THE WEST THIS AFTERNOON...WITH A NARROW BAND OF SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP AHEAD OF THIS FRONT. DAYTIME HEATING AND INCREASING LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL HELP DESTABILIZE THE ATMOSPHERE THIS AFTERNOON AS A WARM FRONT MOVES NORTH ACROSS THE REGION. THIS INCREASED INSTABILITY WILL HELP GENERATE SOME FAIRLY STRONG THUNDERSTORMS UPDRAFTS...AND THE INCREASING WIND SPEEDS WITH HEIGHT WILL HELP THESE UPDRAFTS ROTATE...ENHANCING THE THREAT FOR SEVERE STORMS. THE MAIN SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR OUR AREA BE ACROSS SOUTHEAST ALABAMA AND SOUTHWEST GEORGIA THIS AFTERNOON...ESPECIALLY AFTER 1 PM CDT (2 PM EDT). PENNY SIZE HAIL OR GREATER AND WIND GUSTS NEAR 60 MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH THE STRONGEST STORMS...BUT AN ISOLATED TORNADO CAN NOT BE RULED OUT. THERE IS SOME QUESTION AS TO WHETHER THIS LINE OF STORMS WILL EXTEND SOUTH INTO FLORIDA...AND HOW FAR EAST THE STORMS WILL REACH BEFORE WEAKENING AFTER SUNSET. STILL...A FEW STORMS COULD BE STRONG TO SEVERE IN THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE AND BIG BEND.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT... SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS REQUESTED FOR THIS AFTERNOON FOR SOUTHEAST ALABAMA AND SOUTHWEST GEORGIA.

I'll be around.....Jay
