A strengthening fast-moving front poses a growing risk for tornadoes in the Florida panhandle this evening, then to a lesser degree in parts of North Florida overnight. In addition to the chance of a tornado or two, a squall line of thunderstorms could also produce wind damage and small hail when it arrives. A Tornado Watch was issued at noon for the western half of the Florida panhandle until 9 pm Monday evening. Another watch is likely to be issued for areas further east later in the overnight hours. The front and corresponding line of showers and thunderstorms will exit the state quickly Tuesday morning.
This is what the radar looked like on the Florida Storms mobile app at 2:30 pm today.
