9:43AM: The Storm Prediction Center has “upped” the severe weather forecast for tomorrow, Tuesday, March 1. Here are your 5 main points… 1) A squall line of thunderstorms will likely move through southwest Alabama and northwest Florida late Tuesday into early Wednesday morning. 2) Damaging straight line winds associated with this squall line will be the main concern, yet a few isolated tornadoes are possible as well. 3) SPC has now included virtually all of our region in a Level 1 (out of 5) “marginal” risk area. Note that much of central and north Alabama are now in the Level 2 “slight” risk area. Please remember that even though we had a rare Level 4 risk area last week, that was the anomaly. The Century EF3 tornado happened on a “slight” risk day, as did the many other severe weather events we’ve had over the past few months. 4) Clearly, the greatest risk of severe weather will be to our north. Places like Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Huntsville, Jasper, Hamilton, and Muscle Shoals are included in the Level 2 “slight” risk zone, whereas places like Mobile, Auburn, Alexander City, Troy, Brewton, Thomasville, Andalusia, Flomaton, and Chatom are included in the Level 1 “marginal” risk. 5) I’m not expecting MANY issues in terms of tornadoes across our region tomorrow, but if we have tornado warnings, I’ll be live on our video stream at rzweather.com. Be sure to join me there if we have warnings across southwest Alabama/northwest Florida.

NEAR PERFECT WEATHER… 1) Ample sunshine continues today with high temperatures near 71° across many spots in southwest Alabama and northwest Florida. Nice weather, to say the least! 2) I am cautiously optimistic that the threat of severe weather on Tuesday will be low. No doubt there will be enough instability to cause a few thunderstorms, but for now it seems like the greater dynamic support will be well to north. 3) I’ll have your Sunday afternoon #rzw forecast video up around 2PM. Be sure to join me for that! Enjoy the day!! February 27, 2016 at 08:50PM

12:25PM: Temperatures are near the 60° mark across much of southwest Alabama and northwest Florida. Abundant sunshine continues through the end of the day with more sunshine likely on Sunday. Clouds start streaming in from the southwest on Monday ahead of our next rainmaker that arrives by Tuesday. We certainly could have a few thunderstorms, but as of this moment, the severe weather risk remains fairly low. I’ll be watching trends over the next 24-48 hours for changes…

SUN-FILLED SATURDAY… 1) We’re starting this morning quite chilly with temperatures in the 30s, but we rebound to the mid-60s across southwest Alabama and northwest Florida this afternoon. Plenty of sunshine is likely all day. 2) Sunshine continues on Sunday as high temperatures approach 73°. Clouds increase on Monday and rain returns by Tuesday. 3) The severe weather risk for this next rainmaker remains low. Basically, over the past few rain/storm events, we’ve had a lot of rain out ahead of the front. This, in combination with many other factors, can be problematic. This often “lays the groundwork” for severe weather. The difference with this system is IF most of the rain is behind the front, it will be happening in much more stable air. 4) Main points… Could there be a few thunderstorms Tuesday into Wednesday? Yes, however the severe weather threat remains low as of this moment. Could that change? Yes, and the risk could ramp up in the days ahead. If that happens, I’ll let you know. Enjoy your Saturday!

EF3… That’s the final ranking of the long track, significant tornado that affected Pensacola on Tuesday, February 23. US National Weather Service Mobile Alabama has released the final report for the storm that damaged 70+ homes and destroyed part of The Moorings Apartments. Here are a few highlights… 1) Prior to 2016, there have only been THREE F3 tornadoes (in 1956, 1967, and 1971) recorded in Escambia County, Florida. There have now been TWO EF3 tornadoes confirmed in the past two weeks of 2016, one in Century and one in Pensacola. Truly mind boggling! 2) Maximum winds in the tornado in Pensacola are estimated to have been near 155mph. 3) The tornado path length was 8 miles. It was 300 yards wide at its widest point. 4) The tornado caused damage a few yards northwest of the Walmart & Zaxby’s off Creighton Road in Pensacola before crossing Interstate 10 and North 9th Avenue. The tornado then caused the most significant damage to many structures near Scenic Highway. The rotation then moved over Escambia Bay as a powerful waterspout before moving onshore in southern Santa Rosa County south of Pace. 5) 3 people have been confirmed as injured by the storm, but miraculously, NO fatalities were reported. 6) Thanks to our friends at NWS Mobile for this nice graphic showing the tornado path…

JUST IN as of 11:55AM: Tornado that struck the Pensacola metro will be ranked at least EF2. Assessment teams are in the process of analyzing the damage, and a finalized ranking will likely be released later today. I expect an upgrade to at least EF3, perhaps low end EF4 based on some of the damage reports I’ve seen. February 24, 2016 at 03:56PM
