...THERE IS A MARGINAL RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS NORTHERN
THROUGH CENTRAL FLORIDA...

...SUMMARY...
A few strong to severe thunderstorms with damaging gusts and a brief
tornado are possible Saturday across northern and central Florida.

...Northern through central Florida...

Within a broad, cyclonic upper-flow regime over the eastern U.S., a
series of vorticity maxima will move from the northern Gulf through
a portion of the southeast states including north FL. A stationary
front will persist from the northern Gulf, northeastward to along
the GA/FL border. Most high-res guidance indicate a rain-cooled
boundary will develop across northern FL Saturday morning due to
ongoing areas of showers and thunderstorms. There is uncertainty
regarding the placement of this feature with the HRRR suggesting
most of northern FL may not recover during the day. The warm sector
south of the boundary is expected to become moderately unstable with
mid to upper 60s F dewpoints supporting 1000-1500 J/kg MLCAPE, but
with weak mid-level lapse rates. Deeper forcing associated with the
northeast-migrating maxima will likely remain in cool sector.
However, a few storms are  expected to develop along the rain-cooled
boundary across north or central FL during the afternoon as the
boundary layer destabilizes. While the stronger winds aloft and
vertical shear will reside in the cool sector, at least 30-40 kt
effective bulk shear will support the potential for some storm
organization with locally strong wind gusts the main threat.
Additional strong storms may develop farther south along the sea
breeze.
