That Lee County, Florida storm wasn't warned for the longest time. Here's the radar imagery:

This area really needs an extra radar to fill in holes, considering the demographic vulnerabilities of the area and much of FL (mobile homes, densely packed subdivisions and apartments, elderly snowbirds, etc.). We've already seen two fatalities in a mobile home from that "large and extremely dangerous" tornado near Duette in Manatee County. Seven people were in the home when the tornado hit and did not take any precautions whatsoever. There are numerous mobile homes in the Fort Myers/Cape Coral area as well and is a potential disaster waiting to happen, especially with paltry radar coverage.

Looks like there is a good chance for severe weather next Monday through Wednesday. 

 

DAY 4-8 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK CORR 1
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0406 AM CST WED JAN 27 2016

VALID 301200Z - 041200Z

CORRECTED FOR WORDING IN SECOND PARAGRAPH

...DISCUSSION...
THE MEDIUM-RANGE MODELS CONTINUE TO INDICATE THAT A STRONG
MID-LATITUDE SHORT WAVE TROUGH WILL DIG INLAND ACROSS THE CALIFORNIA
COAST LATE THIS COMING WEEKEND...AND RAPIDLY THROUGH THE FOUR
CORNERS REGION BY EARLY MONDAY. DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE ECENS AND
NCEP MREF THEN SLOWLY BEGIN TO INCREASE CONCERNING THE SPEED OF
FORWARD PROGRESS...EASTWARD ACROSS THE CENTRAL/SOUTHERN
ROCKIES...AND NORTHEASTWARD THROUGH THE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY BY THE
MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. HOWEVER...AGREEMENT EXISTS CONCERNING SUPPORT
FOR STRONG SURFACE CYCLOGENESIS FROM THE SOUTH CENTRAL PLAINS
THROUGH THE LOWER OHIO VALLEY. AND IT APPEARS PROBABLE THAT A
SUBSTANTIVE RETURN FLOW OF MOISTURE FROM THE GULF OF MEXICO INTO THE
WARM SECTOR OF THE LOW WILL EVENTUALLY SUPPORT A CONSIDERABLE
INCREASE IN POTENTIAL FOR SEVERE STORM DEVELOPMENT...IN THE PRESENCE
OF STRONG VERTICAL SHEAR.

GUIDANCE IS SUGGESTIVE THAT A 100 KT WESTERLY JET STREAK AT 500 MB
WILL ACCOMPANY THE UPPER SYSTEM...WITH A 50-70 KT SOUTHERLY JET AT
850 MB DEVELOPING BY NEXT TUESDAY ACROSS THE LOWER MISSISSIPPI
VALLEY. DIFFERENTIAL THERMAL ADVECTION AND STRONG FORCING FOR
UPWARD VERTICAL MOTION MAY SUPPORT INCREASING POTENTIAL FOR SEVERE
STORMS ACROSS PARTS OF THE SOUTH CENTRAL PLAINS INTO THE ARKLATEX
AND OZARK PLATEAU AS EARLY AS MONDAY NIGHT. HOWEVER...CONFIDENCE IN
SUBSTANTIVE LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE RETURN /SURFACE DEW POINTS INCREASING
THROUGH THE 60S...PRECIPITABLE WATER INCREASING UP TO 1.25 INCHES/
AND BOUNDARY LAYER DESTABILIZATION IS GREATER ON TUESDAY ACROSS THE
LOWER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY. SEVERE STORM DEVELOPMENT AS FAR NORTH AS
THE MIDDLE MISSISSIPPI AND LOWER OHIO VALLEYS DOES NOT APPEAR OUT OF
THE QUESTION BY TUESDAY...AND EASTWARD TOWARD THE APPALACHIANS AND
SOUTHEAST NEXT WEDNESDAY...BUT LOWER CONFIDENCE PRECLUDES 15 PERCENT
SEVERE PROBABILITIES ACROSS THESE AREAS AT THIS TIME.

30% added to the D5 on SPC's outlook. Mentioned extreme shear and the risk of a few strong tornadoes in the discussion. Should be worth keeping and eye on if you're in AL and MS.

Birmingham has a great discussion this morning  :D 

 

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BIRMINGHAM AL
601 AM CST TUE FEB 2 2016

.UPDATE...
FOR 12Z AVIATION.

&&

.SHORT TERM...
TODAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.

ALL INDICATIONS CONTINUE TO POINT TOWARD SEVERE THUNDERSTORM
DEVELOPMENT STARTING AS EARLY AS THIS AFTERNOON FOR OUR WESTERN AND
NORTHWEST COUNTIES. WE COULD BE LOOKING AT DISCRETE CELLS DEVELOPING
FIRST...FOLLOWED BY A BROKEN LINE OF STORMS PUSHING INTO OUR
NORTHWEST COUNTIES AROUND 00Z (6PM) THIS EVENING. IF ANY SUPERCELL
THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOP...WE COULD BE LOOKING AT A NARROW WINDOW
BETWEEN 3PM AND 7PM FOR THIS TO OCCUR IN THE WESTERN AND NORTHWEST
COUNTIES. INSTABILITY VALUES AND SHEAR ARE EXPECTED TO BE THE MOST
FAVORABLE DURING THIS TIMEFRAME. AS WE GO THROUGH THE EVENING AND
OVERNIGHT...SEVERE INGREDIENTS WILL PROGRESSIVELY BECOME MORE
MARGINAL AS THE LINE OF STORMS PUSHES ACROSS CENTRAL ALABAMA.
HOWEVER...DUE TO THE RICH MOISTURE THAT WILL REMAIN IN PLACE AND
DECENT SHEAR THE LIMITED THREAT FOR SEVERE STORMS WILL REMAIN ACROSS
ALL OF CENTRAL ALABAMA. WE`RE STILL GOING WITH DAMAGING WINDS AS THE
PRIMARY THREAT WITH TORNADOES ALSO POSSIBLE ESPECIALLY WEST AND
NORTHWEST THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH THE EVENING.

WE CERTAINLY CAN`T IGNORE THE FLOODING THREAT THAT WILL ALSO
ACCOMPANY THIS SYSTEM. PWATS WILL BE NEAR RECORD VALUES FOR THIS
TIME OF THE YEAR AND 850-300MB FLOW WILL BECOME PARALLEL TO THE COLD
FRONT THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT HOURS. RAINFALL RATES OF 2-3 INCHES IN A
COUPLE OF HOURS WILL BE POSSIBLE IN CASES WHERE STORMS TRAIN OVER
THE SAME AREAS. FOR NOW...WE`RE GOING TO HIGHLIGHT THE BEST CHANCE
OF FLASH FLOODING ACROSS OUR WESTERN AND NORTHWEST COUNTIES. THAT`S
DUE TO THE FACT THAT WE MAY GET DISCRETE STORMS FORM OUT AHEAD OF
THE APPROACHING FRONT THAT MAY TRAIN OVER THE SAME AREAS...THEN HAVE
THE BROKEN LINE OF STORMS AHEAD OF THE FRONT ALSO MOVE THROUGH LATER
THIS EVENING. A MORE SOLID LINE OF STORMS IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP AND
SLOWLY PUSH EAST OF THE I-65 CORRIDOR INTO THE EARLY MORNING HOURS
ON WEDNESDAY WITH THE THREAT OF HEAVY RAINFALL CONTINUING.

NOW...LET`S TALK ABOUT THE SPECIFICS GOING INTO THE FORECAST TODAY.
WE`RE VERY CLOSE TO THE POINT WHERE YOU STOP LOOKING AT GUIDANCE
PARAMETERS AND START LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW...SO LET`S TAKE A LOOK
AT THE CURRENT CONDITIONS EARLY THIS MORNING. FIRST...THE COLD FRONT
HAS NOW TURNED NORTHWARD AS A WARM FRONT ACROSS NORTHERN MISSISSIPPI
AND ALABAMA. THAT FRONT HAS CERTAINLY PUSHED FARTHER SOUTH THAN A
LOT OF GUIDANCE WAS INDICATING OVER THE PAST SEVERAL DAYS. WITH THAT
FRONT NOW PUSHING NORTHWARD IN RESPONSE TO THE STRONG SYSTEM ACROSS
THE MIDWEST STATES...THE DOOR WILL BE OPEN TO RICH GULF MOISTURE
ADVECTING NORTHWARD THROUGH THE DAY TODAY. DEWPOINTS ARE ALREADY
BEING OBSERVED IN THE UPPER 60S TO NEAR 70 ALONG THE GULF COAST OF
LOUISIANA. BOUYS AND OBSERVATIONS IN THE NORTHERN GULF ARE SHOWING
AT LEAST 30 KNOT GUSTS OUT OF THE SOUTH WITH LOWER 70S DEWPOINTS.
SO...IF WE GET THE VERY STRONG 925MB LOW LEVEL JET THAT HAS BEEN
ADVERTISED WE SHOULDN`T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS PUSHING AT LEAST MID TO
UPPER 60S DEWPOINTS NORTHWARD ALL THE WAY TO HAMILTON BY THIS
AFTERNOON. LOOKING AT HIGH-RES GUIDANCE...IT SUPPORTS THAT IDEA AS
WELL WITH ALMOST 70 DEWPOINTS PUSHING INTO THE DEMOPOLIS AREA.

WE`D LIKE TO POINT OUT AN INTERESTING FEATURE THIS MORNING AS SEEN
FROM IR SATELLITE IMAGERY AND REGIONAL RADAR. A DISTINCT LOW-LEVEL
BOUNDARY WAS VISIBLE STRETCHING FROM JUST OFF THE TEXAS COASTLINE
NORTHEASTWARD TO NEAR MONROE,LA AS OF 4AM. A WIND SHIFT WAS NOTED
BEHIND THE BOUNDARY FROM OBSERVATIONS...AND WHAT ALMOST LOOKS LIKE A
BORE WAVE WAS BEING PRODUCED BEHIND THE BOUNDARY OVER THE HOUSTON
VICINITY. THIS BOUNDARY WAS QUICKLY PUSHING EASTWARD...AND AT ITS
CURRENT SPEED/TRAJECTORY WILL END UP OVER EAST MISSISSIPPI OR
WESTERN ALABAMA BY THIS AFTERNOON. IT`S BOUNDARIES LIKE THIS ONE
THAT COULD THROW A WRENCH IN THE SEVERE WEATHER FORECAST. IF ENOUGH
PARCEL LIFT CAN OCCUR WITH MESOSCALE BOUNDARIES LIKE THIS ONE...IT
WOULD CERTAINLY ENHANCE LOW-LEVEL SHEAR AS WELL AS UPDRAFT STRENGTH
AND HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO DEVELOP SEVERE STORMS. WE`LL BE WATCHING
THIS FEATURE CLOSELY AS IT MOVES EASTWARD THROUGH THE DAY. IT MAY
NOT DEVELOP ANYTHING...AS THERE ARE STILL SEVERAL INHIBITING FACTORS
THAT WILL BE IN PLAY THIS AFTERNOON AS WE`VE STATED THE PAST TWO
DAYS. THE HIGH PWATS THAT WILL BE IN PLACE ARE EXPECTED TO INHIBIT
LAPSE RATES AND 500MB TEMPS ARE STILL LOOKING RELATIVELY WARM.
GUIDANCE TRENDS HAVE COME IN A BIT COOLER WITH THOSE 500MB
TEMPS...AT LEAST FROM WHAT WE`VE SEEN THIS MORNING. (-11/-12C AS
OPPOSED TO -10C ADVERTISED YESTERDAY)

THE BIG QUESTION MARK WILL BE IF WE CAN GET GOOD ENOUGH UPDRAFTS
THAT CAN BE SUSTAINED. THE WEAK LAPSE RATES CERTAINLY WON`T HELP
THAT CAUSE...AND UPDRAFTS WOULD BE SHEARED APART FROM THE VERY
STRONG 0-6KM BULK SHEAR AND HELICITIES THIS AFTERNOON. IF ENOUGH LOW
LEVEL INSTABILITY CAN GET ADVECTED NORTHWARD WE MAY BE ABLE TO
OVERCOME SOME OF THE INHIBITING FACTORS. HIGH-RES GUIDANCE
(HRRR,WRFARW) CONTINUES TO INDICATE DISCRETE CELL DEVELOPMENT
BEGINNING AS EARLY AS 3PM ACROSS OUR WESTERN COUNTIES...BUT ALSO HAS
HIGH AMOUNTS OF SB CAPE VALUES OF OVER 1000 J/KG OVER CENTRAL
MISSISSIPPI HEADED OUR DIRECTION. THE ONLY WAY WE`RE GOING TO BE
ABLE TO GET THAT KIND OF UNSTABLE AIR IS FOR THE CLOUD COVER TO MIX
OUT. SUNSHINE WOULD THEN BE ALLOWED TO PRODUCE ADDITIONAL DAYTIME
HEATING. IT`S CERTAINLY GOING TO BE ONE OF THOSE DAYS TO CLOSELY
WATCH THE MESOSCALE CONDITIONS THROUGHOUT THE DAY. WE`RE CURRENTLY
SCHEDULED TO LAUNCH A SPECIAL 18Z (12PM) SOUNDING WHICH WILL HELP US
BETTER DETERMINE THOSE MESOSCALE CONDITIONS. WE`LL ALSO PRODUCE
MESOSCALE FORECAST DISCUSSIONS TO BETTER COMMUNICATE THE EVOLVING
TRENDS THROUGH THE DAY SO STAY TUNED FOR THOSE.

AFTER THE COLD FRONT FINALLY PUSHES OUT OF OUR SOUTHEAST COUNTIES BY
WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON...COOLER AND DRIER AIR WILL PUSH SOUTHWARD.
WE`LL BE BACK TO NORMAL OR JUST BELOW FOR THIS TIME OF THE YEAR IN
TERMS OF TEMPS WITH 30S AND 40S EXPECTED FOR LOWS WEDNESDAY NIGHT.

Sun beaming through my office window in Florence, Al. Temp is already at 65 with a dew point of 61. Getting a queasy feeling. Sounds like a good name for a song.

 MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0072   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK   0954 AM CST TUE FEB 02 2016   AREAS AFFECTED...PARTS OF NERN AR...SERN MO...SRN IL...WRN MS   CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH POSSIBLE    VALID 021554Z - 021730Z   PROBABILITY OF WATCH ISSUANCE...60 PERCENT   SUMMARY...SOME UNCERTAINTY LINGERS CONCERNING TIMING...BUT TRENDS   ARE BEING MONITORED FOR INCREASING STORM DEVELOPMENT CAPABLE OF   PRODUCING DAMAGING WIND GUSTS AND ISOLATED TORNADOES...WHICH COULD   COMMENCE AROUND OR SHORTLY AFTER 17-18Z.   DISCUSSION...STRONGEST UPPER DIVERGENCE ASSOCIATED WITH THE MID TO   UPPER JET STREAK /100+ KT AT 500 MB/ NOW NOSING THROUGH THE LOWER   MISSOURI VALLEY CONTINUES TO SHIFT TO THE NORTH/NORTHEAST OF THE   REGION.  HOWEVER...GRADUAL MID-LEVEL HEIGHT FALLS ARE NOW UNDERWAY   SOUTHWARD THROUGH MUCH OF THE MIDDLE TO LOWER MISSISSIPPI   VALLEY...AHEAD OF APPROACHING LARGE-SCALE TROUGHING.   AS THIS CONTINUES...ASSOCIATED MID-LEVEL COOLING...COUPLED WITH   LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE ADVECTION...APPEARS LIKELY TO CONTRIBUTE TO   INCREASING INSTABILITY AND WEAKENING INHIBITION.  WEAK BOUNDARY   LAYER DESTABILIZATION IS BEING AUGMENTED ACROSS MUCH OF EASTERN   ARKANSAS INTO ADJACENT AREAS OF WESTERN TENNESSEE AND THE MISSOURI   BOOTHEEL BY SURFACE HEATING.  GUIDANCE IS SUGGESTIVE THAT THE   ENVIRONMENT MAY BECOME INCREASINGLY CONDUCIVE TO BOUNDARY LAYER   BASED STORM DEVELOPMENT.  THIS MAY INCLUDE INTENSIFICATION OF AN   APPROACHING FRONTAL BAND OF CONVECTION...AND DISCRETE STORM   DEVELOPMENT AHEAD OF IT.   STRONG DEEP LAYER SHEAR IS MORE THAN SUPPORTIVE OF ORGANIZED SEVERE   STORM DEVELOPMENT.  AND STRONG TO EXTREME LOW-LEVEL SHEAR ALONG A   50+ KT SOUTHERLY 850 MB JET AXIS MAY SUPPORT LOW-LEVEL MESOCYCLONES   CAPABLE OF PRODUCING TORNADOES AND LOCALLY ENHANCED DAMAGING WIND   POTENTIAL.  THIS THREAT PROBABLY WILL DEVELOP FURTHER NORTHEASTWARD   WITH WARM SECTOR BOUNDARY LAYER DESTABILIZATION INTO AT LEAST PARTS   OF THE LOWER OHIO VALLEY THROUGH THE AFTERNOON HOURS.   ..KERR/GOSS.. 02/02/2016

Gotta give the SPC a lot of credit for picking up on today's severe weather potential way back last week for their day 7 outlook. One confirmed tornado so far, numerous radar indicated storms ongoing.
