A southeast U.S. severe weather outbreak, typical of an El Nino event during winter, has been ravaging parts of Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas on Christmas Day. Three tornado watches were in effect as of midday, with over a dozen tornado warnings issued. Two tornadoes have been reported in FL, with 4 homes demolished 3 miles west of Lake City in north-central FL early this morning. Low-level wind shear is very strong ahead of a low pressure area in the Ohio River Valley, with 850 mb flow of 50+ knots over the southeast U.S.
Later this week, severe weather outbreaks are possible on Dec 29 and 30 over the central Gulf Coast Region, and the TornadoVideos.net team is preparing for the chase. I plan on meeting Joel and Matt Chatelain in Little Rock, AR the night of Dec 28. Stay tuned for more updates and the live GPS tracker for the chases later this week!
