Severe Weather for East Central Florida January 25 2011 

A line of stong to severe storms tracked eastward across East Central Florida during the late afternoon and evening hours of January 25th 2011. Hazardous Weather Outlooks ahead of the event alerted the public to the possibility of severe weather with advanced lead time for this time period (Tuesday) with the mention of the possibility of long tracked tornadoes and damaging straight line winds in the early morning Hazardous Weather Outlook on Monday. Forecast models continued to indicate the likelihood for severe storms: a strong upper level diffluent jet pattern, strong low level wind fields and increasing Convective Available Potential Energy (CAPE) and instability were forecast over East Central Florida by Tuesday afternoon.

As well as highlighting the upcoming weather threat in Hazardous Weather Outlooks a special Public Information Statement was issued at 6 PM Monday evening highlighting Tornado safety rules and the importance of making sure you have a NOAA Weather Radio set to alert and in good working order.

A Tornado Watch was issued for all of East Central Florida at 210 PM.

A Special Weather Statement was issued at 345 PM which gave advance warning to Lake county that severe storms with destructive winds were forecast to move into Lake county by 5 pm. A Severe Thunderstorm Warning was issued for Lake county, western Orange, western Seminole and northwest Volusia counties at 432 PM through 530 PM.

Numerous Severe Thunderstorm and Tornado Warnings were issued throughout the remainder of the late afternoon and evening as the convective line raced east across the Orlando Metro area toward the Volusia county coast. Transient mesocyclones and rotation were observed with several cells as they moved east to northeast ahead of and along the line. By evening, the main convective line had moved into central areas from Osceola and Brevard counties with discrete convective showers and thunderstorms developing ahead of the line some with rotation. As the convection moved further south, more unidirectional flow and less activity out ahead of the main convective line slightly reduced the threat for discrete convection to produce tornadoes.

Wind damage was reported in multiple counties across East Central Florida. A NWS Storm Survey team has surveyed damage in the Mascotte-Groveland and Ferndale areas on Wednesday and has identified the damage due to thunderstorm winds.
