Nasty Weekend on the Way!!!

Nasty Weekend on the Way!!!All morning long, we’ve been talking about a severe threat around the area this weekend, and as time passes, the models continue to come into agreement.

There is plenty of moisture over the Sunshine State again Friday, so expect another round of afternoon showers and storms, some of which could be heavy.

FUTURE TRACK: Nasty Weekend On The Way

This weekend, the WPBF First Alert Weather Team will be tracking an area of low pressure form in the Gulf of Mexico, and as it does so, it will add more moisture to the area. That will aid in developing our typical afternoon showers and storms both Saturday and Sunday, but the low might generate a very strong line of storms and allow them to move through the peninsula.

This line will bring upper-level winds, favorable for an isolated tornado to spin up, and lots of gusty winds embedded within the storms.

The timing on the worst of the weather looks to be Saturday evening through the overnight hours into Sunday. This means strong storms are possible through the overnight hours, and folks around town might not know severe weather is impacting them until it’s too late. This is the perfect time to go out and purchase an NOAA weather radio, so the warnings could wake you up in the middle of the night. These radios have proven to be lifesavers time and time again.

It is rare that we have a weather setup like this — only three or four times a year as a matter of fact. The whole First Alert Weather Team will be with you throughout the weekend, and remember, you can follow WPBF weather on Facebook at WPBF First Alert Weather or on Twitter at @WPBF25Weather!
