Severe weather prompts warnings for Central Florida

in Central Florida News & Events


The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning Saturday for East central Lake County after a confirmed touchdown from officials.

The warning was removed before 11:30 a.m. Saturday.

“The storm which prompted the tornado warning has weakened limits, and no longer appears capable of producing a tornado,” the weather service said. “A severe thunderstorm warning will be issued shortly as this storm still has the potential to generate damaging strait line winds.”

It won’t be a washout, but a quick-hitting line of showers and storms will move across Central Florida through the first-half of Saturday. Rain will increase mid-morning for areas northwest of I-4 and work into the I-4 corridor by the early afternoon.
