Severe storms confined to South Florida, tornado possible
Thursday, May 25, 2017, 9:53 - Several areas of low pressure spinning within the upper level trough will keep the southeast U.S. unsettled into the Memorial Day Weekend.
While flash flooding will be a concern, this rain will be beneficial for areas in drought, including wildfire-prone Florida and South Georgia. Here's what you need to know.
Showers and thunderstorms will develop over parts of Southern Florida becoming confided to the southern most tip of Florida by Friday evening. Some of these thunderstorms may produce strong/damaging wind gusts, and even a brief waterspout of tornado, according to the Storm Prediction Center. However, storms are not predicted to be as strong as they were on Friday.
South Florida can expect less than an inch of additional rainfall as the system dissipates.
While the rain may linger into the Memorial Day Long Weekend across parts of the Gulf Coast, Northeast, Upper Midwest and Mid-Atlantic, most of the severe storm activity will be centered around central parts of the country Friday and Saturday.
Memorial Day Weekend
Most of the active weather should clear out in time for fireworks Monday, as the cold front pushes east of the I-95 corridor.
