2020欧洲杯正规平台A wet weekend with the possibility of tornadoes is expected in the Big Bend as another line of severe weather sweeps across the south.

National Weather Service meteorologists in Tallahassee say the heaviest storms are likely late Sunday going into Monday morning.

2020欧洲杯正规平台It could mean gusty winds, the possibility of tornadoes and hail in the Tallahassee area, said meteorologist Wright Dobbs.

2020欧洲杯正规平台Tallahassee sits on the edge of the "enhanced" zone of severe weather models, with the heavier stuff in Georgia and Southeast Alabama, but the capital city is still at an elevated risk.

2020欧洲杯正规平台“We’re still looking to see what’s going to happen, but we’ll see how that threat evolves,” Dobbs said. “We don’t want folks to focus specifically on the categories. We still want folks to be ready.”

While the strongest storms are possible Sunday, it is expected to be a wet weekend overall with the potential for scattered storms and gusty weather throughout the day Saturday.

Locally, as much as 2 inches of rain is forecast for Tallahassee while close to 4 inches could fall in parts of South Georgia.

2020欧洲杯正规平台“One thing we want to point out,” Dobbs said, “is we’re going to see some storm conditions through much of the weekend.”
