Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible on Friday for much of Florida. Excessive rainfall is possible across much of the Southeast. Moderate snowfall is possible for the Rockies.
There will be a risk for severe weather during the morning hours on Friday for parts of Florida. Strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible as a surface low is forecast to lift across the panhandle of Florida. The primary threats with these thunderstorms will be damaging winds, heavy rainfall, and frequent lightning. There is a very slight risk for tornadoes across the west coast of Florida.
The same surface low pressure that is forecast to bring severe weather to parts of Florida will bring heavy rain to the Southeast. Total rainfall amounts of 2-3 inches are expected, with locally higher amounts of 4 inches can be possible.
In the western half of the country, a weak upper level disturbance will move over the Rockies, bringing snow showers to the region. Total accumulations of 4-6 inches can be expected with higher snowfall amounts in elevations above 4000 feet.
