2/14/2017

Low pressure currently developing over eastern Texas will move rapidly east-northeastward this afternoon and tonight, reaching west central Georgia by Wednesday morning.  A squall line containing strong to severe thunderstorms has developed ahead of this low pressure center, and this activity will continue moving eastward along the northern Gulf coast states this afternoon and tonight. Although this squall line may become broken in appearance as it approaches inland southeast Georgia around or shortly after sunrise on
Wednesday, conditions aloft over our region will be supportive of strong to severe thunderstorm development throughout the day on Wednesday. 

Thunderstorms will move rapidly east-northeastward at 40-50 mph, which will place this activity over coastal southeast Georgia and northeast Florida by the early to mid-afternoon hours on Wednesday. As a result, the Storm Prediction Center has placed our entire region within a marginal risk for severe thunderstorm development on Wednesday. 

All modes of severe weather, including
damaging wind gusts, hail, and isolated tornadoes, will be possible on Wednesday due to very strong wind shear and moderate atmospheric instability forecast to be in place over our region.

There will also be an elevated risk for rip currents Wednesday.  Small craft advisory conditions for coastal waters will be likely Wednesday and continue into Thursday morning.
