Central Florida under tornado watch

First day of weather warning: Tornado watch issued as severe storms pose threat to central Florida

SATURDAY, MAY 25 AT 10:00 AM AT 647. ON OUR FIRST DAY OF WEATHER WARNING, WE KNOW A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING JUST EXPIRED, RIGHT? KELLIANNE, THIS IS EXACTLY TRUE. AT 645 IT EXPIRED WE NO LONGER HAVE ACTIVE WARNINGS. But I want to remind you that we still have this tornado watch in effect until 11 a.m. this morning for all of our Central Florida locations. SO JUST A WATCH MEANS BEING PREPARED. CONDITIONS ARE RIPE FOR TORNADO FORMATION. A WARNING MEANS THERE IS AN IMMINENT THREAT. But for now, just a tornado watch in effect. Now I want to get you out. IT’S A LOOK IN LAKE COUNTY RIGHT NOW. WE HAVE A LOT OF CLOUD COVER TO START. WE MIGHT EVEN SEE A DROP IN CLOUD COVER JUST DUE TO SOME COOLING. This is called a Scud cloud. BUT OVERALL, THINGS ARE NOT TOO BAD FROM THIS POINT OF VIEW. BUT KNOW THAT THROUGHOUT THE MORNING AND EARLY AFTERNOON, WE WILL STILL HAVE THIS POTENTIAL FOR A FEW SEVERE TO SANDSTONE STORMS. So even though things are pretty quiet right now, without any active warnings, we still have this potential. So let’s look at the first warning radar. THIS IS A LINE OF THUNDERSTORMS APPROACHING THE I-4 CORRIDOR INTO SEMINOLE COUNTY AND NORTHWEST ORANGE COUNTY. THINGS ARE NICE AND DRY FOR FLAGLER, MARION, NORTHERN LAKE AND NORTH SUMTER COUNTIES. IT WAS THIS SEVERE STORM WARNED IN LAKE COUNTY THAT PUSHED OVER DELAND. IT’S REALLY STARTING TO WEAKEN, THAT’S WHAT WE LIKE TO SEE NOW. WE STILL HAVE SOME LIGHTNING INLAND, SO IT’S NOT SIGNIFICANT, HEAVY RAIN, BUT IT’S JUST ENOUGH. AND IT LOOKS LIKE WE’RE HAVING A LITTLE HAIL JUST EAST OF LAKE HELEN. HAIL NOT SO SIGNIFICANT BUT TO ISSUE A WARNING OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS. LOTS OF RAIN FROM NEW SMYRNA BEACH TO SAMSULA TOWARDS DELTONA. WORK DIRECTED TO SANFORD. So, head towards SANFORD, LET THE RAIN BE IN YOUR DIRECTION AND ON YOUR APPROACH. RAIN FOR SORRENTO ZELLWOOD MOUNT DORA TOWARDS THE ASTATULA AREA. A FEW SHOWERS AHEAD OF THIS MAIN LINE FOR LIOTTA, AND WE HAVE A FEW MORE POINTY SHOWERS AS WE LOOK TOWARDS OSCEOLA COUNTIES AND THROUGH THE MORNING THIS LINE OF THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE TO WORK TO THE SOUTH AND L IS, PRODUCING A LOT OF RAIN AND CAM. WE HAVE ALREADY SEEN A LOT OF RAIN IN CENTRAL FLORIDA. THAT’S RIGHT. LOOK AT SOME RAIN RATES DURING SOME OF THESE STORMS IN KELLIANNE FOLLOW. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT RAIN RATES WELL OVER AN INCH PER HOUR. IF WE CAN JUMP UP TO SEE TWO OF THEM HERE, THE RAINFALL IS AFFECTING ABOUT AN INCH TO TWO INCHES. ONE HOUR. AND THAT’S WHY WE’VE ALREADY SEEN MORE THAN TWO INCHES OF RAIN IN SOME LOCATIONS. So earlier this morning when we had that line over Flagler County and Pine Lakes, you got over two inches of rain. PALM COAST, ALMOST TWO INCHES FROM DAYTONA BEACH, ALMOST TWO INCHES TO ORMOND BEACH, AN INCH AND A HALF. AS WE CONTINUE THROUGH THE MORNING, WE WILL CONTINUE TO SEE THESE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS MOVE THROUGH METRO ORLANDO. AND THEN FROM THIS AFTERNOON WE MAY BE ABLE TO SEE ANOTHER ROUND OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TOO WITH THE DAYTIME HEATING. AND WE’RE ALSO LOOKING AT MOISTURE COMING FROM THE GULF OF MEXICO. THIS COULD BRING US OUR NEXT RAIN RED. THEN, AS WE GO IN THE LATE AFTERNOON TO EARLY EVENING AROUND 5:00 P.M., I THINK THE THREAT OF SEVERE WEATHER BY THEN SHOULD BE OVER. IT’S A HOT AND MUGGY START BUT AS YOU ARE RUNNING OUT THE GATE THIS WEDNESDAY MORNING. 72 RIGHT NOW IN DELAND, 73 CURRENTLY IN THE VILLAGES. We are currently in the mid 70s in Orlando. FIRST DAY WEATHER WARNING UNTIL THE AFTERNOON. HIGH TEMPERATURES TODAY ONLY RISING INTO THE UPPER 80S. THANK YOU. RAIN SHOWERS AND CLOUDS WE EXPECT TODAY. THE WEEKEND WEATHER IS NOT GETTING TOO BAD. WE’RE GOING TO SEE A HOT WEEKEND IN THE STORE, SO BE CAREFUL. 96 TO HIGH SATURDAY BUT WITH HIGHER HUMIDITY. FEELING LIKE THE UPPER 90S AT THE START OF NEXT WEEK. WE START TO DRY OUTSIDE AND AT THE END OF THE WEEK WE DRY TOO. SO, ONCE WE PASS THIS FIRST WARNING, THE WEATHER CONDITIONS WILL IMPROVE.
