WEATHER: Update on Tonight/Tomorrow Morning’s Severe Weather

The storm system that is moving into southwest Georgia Thursday night/Friday morning is expected to bring a severe weather threat.  Here’s the latest:
What:  Scattered thunderstorms with a few severe storms possible.  Damaging straight line wind is the main threat, although a tornado or two cannot be ruled out.  Locally heavy rain is also possible.
When:  Thursday night through mid-morning Friday.
Where:  The greatest threat is across the Florida Panhandle and western Big Bend, but the threat extends across southeast Alabama and into southwest Georgia as well.
Impacts: Sporadic impacts to trees and power lines is the most likely impact.  Greater impacts are possible if a tornado or two develops, but we are currently not expecting widespread severe weather.  Isolated pockets of minor flooding in poor drainage areas are also possible with locally heavy rain in a brief period of time.
