Florida Panhandle under Tornado Watch

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a slight risk for severe weather across portions of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.

The threat for severe weather continues to shift east, as areas of the Florida Panhandle are under a Tornado Watch.

The Storm Prediction Center warned cities from Pensacola to near Tallahassee for the potential of tornadic thunderstorms during the morning hours. 

The SPC put areas from Florida to North Carolina under slight risk zone on Thursday. A slight risk is a two out of 5 on the severe weather scale and means that scattered severe storms are possible but are typically short-lived.

The cold front triggering the wet weather has a history of producing severe storms. On Wednesday, numerous severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings were issued from Texas to Alabama.

Favorable conditions for severe weather will continue to be present through Thursday in northern Florida, southern Georgia and the Carolinas. Should storms become severe, damaging wind and isolated tornadoes will be the main threat.
