11am Severe Weather Update | Weather
Ok the new model data is coming in and it looks like the storm has slowed down a very tiny bit. We are looking at pushing the time on the initial line making to the AL/GA border by around 4-5, then making it to the metro area by around 7-8.
The latest WRF Is showing plenty of instability for and shear for severe t-storms, but the low level shear might have come down a bit in the latest runs. This would mean the tornado threat might be going down just a bit, but as always in the world of weather things can change. If you take a look at the sequence starting at 4pm and going through 9pm you will see that the WRF is trying to develop isolated storms, but there appears to be a small weakness in the wind field creating more of a bow echo profile in the storms that will develop this afternoon.
Also the latest STP is showing a 2-3 for all of N Georgia later tonight... We will continue to monitor this and keep you posted.
