Severe weather season continues to be in full swing as we anticipate another round of thunderstorms on Thursday.

Widespread rain showers are guaranteed throughout the day, and some thunderstorms will contain stronger factors. Such as damaging winds, small hail, and isolated tornadoes.

We start seeing a few isolated showers during the later morning hours. These should be fairly weak with only brief periods of moderate rainfall. However energy will continue to be available for further storm production as we go later into the afternoon.

Stronger storms begin to rapidly develop towards the western Wiregrass by the early afternoon. This will be the leading edge of the main line of thunderstorms. Ahead of this boundary will be an increase in cloud cover and winds. As this line travels further west, strong thunderstorms will develop AHEAD of it. These storms will contain the greatest threat for hail and tornadoes.

The bulk of the storm set-up should be centered over the Wiregrass by the later afternoon. With the influence of strong, southerly flow that will include decent amounts of gulf moisture, powerful thunderstorms are likely to develop. Expect frequent lightning strikes, strong wind gusts, small hail, and isolated tornadoes.

This cluster of storms will be moving fairly quickly, and should exit the southeast by early evening.
