SEVERE WEATHER TO IMPACT PANHANDLE, BIG BEND THROUGH TUESDAY


~Lightning Strikes, Strong Winds, Possible Tornadoes, and Isolated Flooding Anticipated~

Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) officials are urging residents and visitors across north Florida to stay alert as a storm system enters the region tonight. This storm system may produce lightning strikes, high wind gusts, and isolated tornadoes. A flash flood watch is in effect across the Panhandle from Escambia to Leon counties until 12 PM Tuesday.

“A squall line of thunderstorms will move into the western Panhandle this evening, bringing with it a strong possibility of severe weather and rainfall totals that could exceed two inches in some areas,” said State Meteorologist Amy Godsey. “These storms will move into the Big Bend area during the morning hours, and although the storms are expected to be weaker, they still carry the risk of isolated severe weather.”
