Severe Thunderstorms Possible Late Saturday and Sunday

.Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Possible Late Saturday and Sunday…
.Gusty Straight Line Winds, Large Hail, Torrential Rain, and Isolated Tornadoes Possible…
Synopsis & Timing
 
Increasing moisture will stream into region ahead of a potent system heading toward Southeast Georgia and Northeast Florida. This moisture combined with a couple disturbances will track across the region ahead of an approaching cold front to create strong to severe thunderstorms Saturday night and Sunday. Initially showers with isolated thunderstorms will develop over the Suwannee Valley and interior Southeast Georgia Saturday afternoon.  Thunderstorms will initially develop over the Gulf of Mexico Saturday morning and spread slowly eastward Saturday night and Sunday, increasing in coverage.  Strong to severe storms may impact our region Saturday night, and Sunday with likely two to three rounds of these strong to severe thunderstorms.
Thunderstorm Hazards
The main hazards from thunderstorms late Saturday night and Sunday will be down-burst wind gusts of 50-75 mph, excessive lightning strikes, and feasibly large hail. In addition, torrential downpours and isolated tornadoes will be possible.  The atmosphere will be favorable with speed and directional shear.  This is where winds increase markedly in speed with height and change direction abruptly in the lower levels of the atmosphere.  These atmospheric conditions may allow some storms to exhibit rotation, where some storms may produce tornadoes or dangerous straight line winds. 
severepotential weekendstormtotal
Marine hazards
Small craft advisory conditions will likely develop this weekend as a strong cold front moves across the waters Sunday evening. Strong thunderstorms will be possible on Sunday over the adjacent Atlantic waters.  There may wind gusts to gale force (equal to or exceeding 34 knots) for the offshore waters late Saturday night through Monday evening.  Wave heights over the offshore waters will increase 7 to 9 feet from Sunday morning into early Tuesday morning.

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE STORM SURVEY HAS CONFIRMED A TORNADO NEAR THE CLINCH AND ATKINSON COUNTY BORDER. THE PRELIMINARY INTENSITY WAS A HIGH END EF-1 TORNADO WITH MAXIMUM WINDS OF 100 MPH. THE TORNADO TOUCHED DOWN JUST EAST OF HWY 221 AND WAS ON THE GROUND FOR 20 MINUTES. THE PATH LENGTH WAS ABOUT 7.8 MILES AND IT WAS MOVING EAST  AT ABOUT 25 MPH. MAXIMUM WIDTH WAS ABOUT 0.7 MILES WIDE.

ONE HOME WAS HEAVILY DAMAGED WITH MOST OF THE ROOF REMOVED. THIS WAS A STRUCTURE OF OLDER CONSTRUCTION WITH WOOD LATH ROOFING  CONSTRUCTION AND NO BRACING IN THE RAFTERS. MAJOR TREE BLOW DOWN  OCCURRED IN TWO AREAS: THE FIRST NEAR THARPE ROAD, NORTH OF ARABIA BAY, AND THE SECOND NEAR KEATON FARM ROAD AND THE GUEST MILLPOND AREA OFF U.S. HIGHWAY 441.

FROM THE GUEST MILLPOND AREA THE FUNNEL TRAVELED NEAR AND NORTH OF STAGE COACH ROAD AND WEAKENED NEAR COGDELL AND SANDY BOTTOM IN  ATKINSON COUNTY, BY MEXICO ROAD. IT IS POSSIBLE THE FUNNEL MAY HAVE LIFTED PRIOR TO REACHING COGDELL AND THE DAMAGE THERE MAYBE ATTRIBUTED TO THE REAR FLANK DOWNDRAFT (RFD), AS IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO ASCERTAIN WHETHER THE RFD CAUSED THE DAMAGE NEAR COGDELL WE WILL MAINTAIN THE TORNADO PATH TO THAT LOCATION. THE STORM WAS CONSIDERABLY WEAKER IN THAT AREA WITH EF-0 SCALE DAMAGE OBSERVED.

ONE INDIRECT INJURY OCCURRED WHEN AN INDIVIDUAL CLEARING HIS ROOF WAS INJURED POST STORM.

University of Florida becomes StormReady

Lead Forecaster, Angela Enyedi, representative from the National Weather Service traveled to University of Florida Campus in Gainesville to present a certificate and program sign designating the University of Florida as a StormReady University.

The StormReady program is a nationwide preparedness program started in 1999 by the National Weather Service (NWS) to help arm America’s universities, and communities with the communication and safety skills needed to save lives and property-before and during a severe weather event. The program encourages communities to take a new, proactive approach to improving local hazardous weather operations by providing emergency managers with clear-cut guidelines on how to improve their hazardous weather operations. No university or community is storm proof, but being part of the StormReady program can help save lives.

In order to qualify as a StormReady University, University of Florida  had to meet rigorous criteria established by the NWS and then undergo a comprehensive inspection of our systems by meteorologists from the NWS in order to prove compliance.

The required criteria included:

  • Establish a 24-hour warning point emergency operations center.
  • Implement numerous ways to receive severe weather warnings and have mechanisms in place to disseminate the information to the campus community.
  • Create a system that monitors weather conditions locally
  • Promote public readiness throughout the campus
  • Develop a formal hazardous weather plan which includes training severe weather spotters and holding emergency exercises
