Florida Weather

Florida's tornado season is from December to April with F3 or greater tornadoes. F5 tornadoes have not been recorded in Florida but F4 tornadoes have been recorded between December thru April. F3 tornadoes have occurred in May and June at coastal counties and other parts of Florida once in September and some F3's in October. Small F2 to F0 tornadoes can occur almost any time of the year in Florida. Tornadoes in Florida can occur anytime of the day and at night near midnight or predawn hours.

The Fujita Tornado Scale

Slow moving severe thunderstorms, usually summertime thunderstorms, can produce macroburst or microburst wind gust causing major property damage to a very small area about 2.5 miles, more or less, in diameter.

Hurricane season is from June to November and short-lived tornadoes can be produced by them. Before rapid intensification, some hurricanes have been observed to have intense convection that is sufficient to produce embedded tornadoes, especially within the outer convective rainbands. A hurricane's right-front quadrant relative to its motion is the most likely area for tornado formation. Most hurricane-spawned tornadoes form in outer rainbands some 50 to 200 miles from the cyclone center, but some have occurred in the inner core. The most likely time for hurricane spawned tornadoes is during daylight hours, although they can occur during the night too. There have been no F5-rated tornadoes from hurricanes in the past 50 years of reliable data and only two F4 tornadoes. Tornadoes from hurricanes are often spawned by unusually small storm cells that may not appear dangerous on weather radars, especially if the cells are located more than about 60 miles from the radar. In addition, these small storms often tend to produce little or no lightning and no thunder. Furthermore, the tornadoes are often obscured by rain and the storm cells spawning them may move rapidly, thus leaving little time to take evasive action.

Weather Warnings for Florida
NOAA Weather Radio is a fast source for comprehensive weather and emergency information.
One of the most important reasons to own a weather radio is the ability to receive up to the minute information on severe weather.
http://www.srh.noaa.gov/jax/noaaradio.shtml
http://www.srh.noaa.gov/mlb/nwr1.html
If you are under a Warning it is best to leave the weather radio audio on to get non-alarm Weather Statements that can contain more important information than just Warnings! Also, the audio should be on because a storm can knock the weather radio station off the air. Most stations have a backup channel that covers the same county so you can switch to that weather radio channel. Check the
local National Weather Service office's web site to find what channels to use in your local area.

It is recommended you read Forecast Discussions [
FXUS62 KJAX - AFDJAX is for my area; also read surrounding areas from other Forecast Offices.] because it gives you details and insight for long term forecasts and uncertainties in short term forecasts. The for-profit commercial weather from TV and radio stations uses this government information but they make it look like they produced it without giving credit to NOAA NWS forecasters.

CCCC - Four-letter NWS office identifier
http://www.nws.noaa.gov/datamgmt/x_ref/xr08_CCCC_ID_List.html

The Coded Cities Forecast is a coded forecast that is routinely issued twice daily around 200 to 400 a.m. and
200 to 400 p.m. along with the Zone Forecast. It provides a detailed overview of the forecast for 14 periods,
or the next seven days. The Coded Cities Forecast will have a different sequence depending upon the
transmission time. The forecast takes the following format.

4:00 a.m.
LLL D1D2 max/min max/min max FFP1P2P3
D3D4D5D6D7 min/max min/max min/max min/max min P4P5P6P7P8P9P10P11P12P13P14

4:00 p.m.
LLL D1D2 min/max min/max min FFP1P2P3
D3D4D5D6D7 max/min max/min max/min max/min max P4P5P6P7P8P9P10P11P12P13P14

A description of each part of the coded cities forecast follows:
LLL - Three-letter station identifier:
http://www.nws.noaa.gov/tg/siteloc.shtml enter K and then the Three-letter station identifier

D1, D2, D3, D4, D5, D6, D7 - One-word forecast which represents the predominate weather expected
during the daylight hours for that day.

The following list gives the corresponding letters and weather elements.
A Fair
B Partly Cloudy
C Cloudy
D Dust
E Mostly Cloudy
F Foggy
G Very Hot or Hot/Humid
H Haze
I Very Cold/Wind Chill
J Snow Showers
K Smoke

Q Blowing Snow
R Rain
S Snow
T Thunderstorms
U Sunny
V Clear
W Rain Showers
X Sleet
Y Freezing Rain
Z Freezing Drizzle

max/min or min/max - Temperatures (F) are encoded with three digits. For example, 52F is encoded 052,
112F is encoded 112, 7F is encoded 007. Temperatures below zero are preceded by the digit 9. For
example, -15F is encoded 915.

FF - The forecaster's identification number with digits 01 through 99.

P1P2P3 - Probability of Precipitation (POP) values for
consecutive 12-hour periods through 7 days. If the probability
of precipitation is 50% or greater, the corresponding one-word
forecast for that day will normally be for the precipitation event.
The value is coded as follows:

Current Conditions or enter your location [Hourly unless otherwise noted]
_
The current conditions are derived from airport observations (METARs) near the top of the hour. Special airport observations (SPECs) are issued individually only for significant changes between the hour. Airport observations provide excellent quality or accuracy control of the data, a reason they are used by TV and radio stations. Non-airport Cooperative Observer Program (COOP such as school, agri., etc.) automated stations are updated more often than hourly but can lack in quality or accuracy of data. Some links to current conditions may not show the most recent observation so always check the time stamp in the product. Other sources of current weather are listed at the following links.

CINH (Convective Inhibition)
TPW (Total Precipital Water)
Moist area of TPW >20mm downwind with jetstream of dryer area (about 200 miles further West from moist area) that equals mm difference >9 correlating with unstable to stable LI = area and intensity of future tornadoes if other conditions are right (Low pressure position, jetstream above, low-level winds, high CAPES, low CINH, etc.)

The Central Florida Tornado Outbreak of Feb. 22nd & 23rd, 1998
_
I concluded a tornado would pass near me over twelve hours before it really did. Government websites and detailed products on the Internet produced by the government helped me determine that. So instead of going to bed due to expectation of nearby tornadoes, I stayed up that night checking the weather on the Internet and listening to amateur radio skywarn nets and NOAA weather radio. But the weather radio transmitter later got knocked off the air, which is a reason why it is very important to have another backup weather channel, amateur radio skywarn nets, and the ability to monitor government public-safety services. The weather radio and radio scanner programmed to skywarn nets, public-safety government agencies, CB radio, etc. gave me the earliest warning before I did actually hear the tornando coming. A rapidly increasing low frequency rumble to a deafly oscillating roar and nearby crunching sound of debris and cars being tossed around is something I will never forget. Three people about a mile from me were killed by this one tornado and many more were killed by other tornadoes in the region.
