It would be great if somebody could confirm my suspicions on a cell that's just passing roughly 50 miles north of Tampa, FL right now. I'm in Orlando, but I don't think I'm gonna be able to get out of work for this (maybe). Perhaps it'll be a lunch break catch. By the looks of things, today and tomorrow could just be our token "spring severe weather day" for this year, which usually amounts to a handful of weak supercells. While posting this, I just found out we've been issued a tornado watch. First of the year. Hurray!

On a side note, I just signed up for the Stormtrack Forums last night. I've been reading your forums for a long time now, and am excited to start contributing. I've been studying as an amateur for many years now, and I finally feel like I've found actual people I can talk to about all this great stuff. I'm also a pretty good source for anything you might want to discuss with regards to the whacky, lightning-filled fun of the boundary collision chaos that we have in the summertime here.

Wouldn't ya know it... Things are getting pretty decent here now (Orlando is under a storm warning at the moment), and the low stratus deck seems to be breaking. Will try to snap some shots this afternoon.
I'm 2 days late with, but yes indeed a severe storm did pass over the Crystal River area in Citrus County. It created a very damaging microburst, and dumped a hell of a lot rain.
