Jamiewx and all: Having lived in FL for many years and having the rest of my family living there now, I can tell you the comment that the threat of tornados is nil from Tampa Bay northward seems just ridiculous to me. First all, FL gets tornados from garden variety rainstorms--some associated with passing cold fronts as well as the typical summer convection. I experienced one in Winter Park on Christmas Eve associated ewith a frontal passage. But it is also true that hurricane-spawned tornados tend to be in the outer rain bands as I understand it and that is just what is likely to pass over north central FL. Granted, it may not be the worst area (the bands in the forward-right quadrant) but it will surely be capable of spawning tornados. And subsequent posts have confirmed that other bulletin and predictions include a serious threat of tornados.
