Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 5:01 PM EST Dec. 13, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Severe thunderstorms possible Friday and Friday evening...

The National Weather Service in tracking the potential for a few
strong to severe thunderstorms across west-central Florida Friday
into Friday evening.

A cold front will approach the Florida Peninsula during Friday and
be preceded by a round or two of showers and thunderstorms moving
ashore from the Gulf of Mexico. Conditions appear favorable on
Friday to support a few of the thunderstorms becoming severe.
Although a widespread severe weather outbreak is not anticipated
at this time, any severe storms that do occur will be capable of
producing localized damaging winds and even an isolated tornado.

In addition to the severe weather threat, the progress of the cold
front is expected to be slow, allowing for localized heavier
rainfall totals. The heavy rainfall threat will increase if it
occurs over urbanized areas during the late afternoon rush hour.

Most likely timing: the severe weather and heavy rainfall threat
begins north of the I-4 corridor during the morning hours and then
progress slowly south and east through the day, reaching the
Tampa Bay area during the middle afternoon to early evening hours.

The severe weather threat is currently expected to decrease
during the late evening, as the thunderstorms progress toward The
Fort Myers region. However, the potential for heavy rainfall,
lightning strikes, and gusty winds should continue.

Residents of west-central Florida should monitor weather
conditions on Friday and be prepared to take action should
warnings be issued.
