Possible Severe Weather Event on Tuesday- 1/18

Heavy rain and the possibility of severe weather is likely on Tuesday, of this week. Rain will accumulate to around an inch in many locations around North Florida. Rain is possible at any time of the day. A shortwave trough and associated low pressure system will come at us from the Gulf of Mexico and crisscross the state. With temperatures in the 70's, dew points in the 60's, and average amount a shear, a severe thunderstorm or two is possible. The biggest threats, thus far, appear to be gusty winds and an isolated tornado.
