According to National Weather Service, 6 counties in Central Florida are being affected between 11:17 PM of Sat., 2/6/2021 to 7:00 AM of Sun., 2/7/2021.
“Ahead of this storm, temperatures will be warm with light showers. By 7 p.m., strong storms will arrive to North Central Florida,” said FOX 35 meteorologist Allison Gargaro. “The biggest threats will be damaging wind gusts, heavy rain, lightning, small hail and the possibility of a tornado or two.” The Storm Prediction Center has expanded the Slight Risk area to now include Osceola and Brevard Counties. The timing of these potentially severe storms will begin after 5 p.m. today. The strongest threat will be between the hours of 7 p.m. and 1 a.m., after that, showers will continue into the early morning hours on Sunday, in the video “Tornado watch in place for much of Central Florida“, below:
Strong winds with hail are already occurring in Florida and bigger storms are coming in north Florida and central Florida. The weather that is quite extreme in Florida will have a big impact on this area. Thunderstorms are also predicted to occur from Sunday morning to Monday at night. Severe thunderstorms will occur between Gainesville and Melbourne, from the Gulf coast to the Atlantic coast. A thunderstorm that is large enough will occur throughout the Florida area. The hail accompanied by strong winds will produce the strongest storm in this February. Florida residents are warned to be careful to reduce activities outside the home, because quite extreme storms hit almost parts of the United States, in the video “Big Tornado & Storm Will Happen On Florida, USA February 8 9, 2021?“, below:
