The potential for severe weather this weekend in our area has weakened greatly since the forecasts that were issued the middle of the week.   The Sumter County are is still listed in a 5% risk area, but I don’t expect much in the way of organized severe weather this weekend.  The conditions on the ground could change this outlook, but at the moment this is what the SPC expects to see.

It is also important to note that the total rainfall numbers have backed off some from their rather bullish totals at mid-week.  This is a good this as well considering all the rain that has fallen this week and the saturated condition of the soil.  Stay tuned for any updates to the forecast, but at the moment we look good.
