Weather Underground midday recap for Wednesday, April 30, 2014
More heavy rainfall and strong thunderstorms developed across the Southeast on Wednesday, while the Mid-Atlantic states saw severe thunderstorm development. A strong cold front continued moving across the Eastern states and continued pulling abundant moisture northward from the Gulf of Mexico. This allowed for heavy rainfall and flooding to continue across the Southeast, moving into the panhandle of Florida. Rainfall totals surpassed 5 inches in some locations across the Florida panhandle, with up to 9.52 inches of rain reported at Destin, Florida, and 7.14 inches reported at Panama City, Florida. These areas saw rainfall rates over 2 inches per hour, which caused major flood damage to roads, homes, and people. Please remember to stop and turn around when you come to a flooded road as it is always deeper than it looks.
At the same time, the northern side of this cold front stretched northward up the East Coast and also brought heavy rain and flooding to the Northeastern states and New England. There was a slight chance of severe thunderstorm development for parts of the Mid-Atlantic states, as moisture and energy continued to pour in from the south. Severe thunderstorms were expected to develop from South Carolina through Washington D.C., with large hail and strong damaging winds as the main threats, with a couple of tornadoes possible.
