10:22AM November 12, 2018


COASTAL STORMS… We had one tornado warning about an hour ago near Pensacola Beach, Gulf Breeze, and Garcon Point in northwest Florida. That tornado warned storm has weakened drastically and is now near Allentown and Chumuckla. Another supercell thunderstorm is approaching southern Escambia (FL) and Santa Rosa counties as of 10:22AM. We’ll need to watch this rotating storm as it approaches Pensacola Beach, Gulf Islands National Seashore, Navarre, Oriole Beach, and Gulf Breeze in 30-45 minutes.

TORNADO WATCH… A Tornado Watch continues for the entirety of Mobile, Baldwin, Escambia (FL), Santa Rosa, and Okaloosa counties valid until Noon. I expect the tornado watch to probably be reissued for the afternoon hours. There’s a good chance more counties to the north may need to be included. A warm front currently draped near the Alabama & NW Florida beaches is progressively moving northward. This will allow moist, unstable air to filter into coastal counties and set the stage for a few more brief tornadoes.

INLAND SHOWERS & STORMS… Intermittent downpours of heavy rain continue to happen across many inland communities as of 10:22AM. The heaviest rain, at the moment, is happening near Repton, Range, Frisco City, Excel, and Whatley along the US84 corridor. Most of the storms that happen across inland today will be elevated and under severe limits. Heavy rain that could lead to flash flooding will be the main concern inland.

More updates will continue to be posted in the RedZone Weather app throughout the day. We’ll go LIVE on Facebook and in the video tab of the app as needed when we have warnings. Stay safe and have a great Monday!
