Severe Weather Potential Increasing

As a prelude to today's post, be advised that the Storm Prediction Center
has placed all of Central Florida under a "Slight Risk" for severe weather
later this evening into the post-midnight hours. Wind fields should be
supportive of sustained severe thunderstorms and possibly supercell storms.
Increasing upper level diffluence should yield a conditional threat for
isolated tornadoes as well. Thinking is that as the system holds off until
later to enter the area that the air mass over the region will have ample
time to continue to destabilize. (My addition: The fly in the ointment for
the immediate east coast will be the ocean waters...however, by midnight
this may not make much of a difference as all areas will have cooled
equally, plus the fact that the wind will not have nearly the 'coming off
the ocean' trajectory.)
