Storms entered Central Florida around noon Tuesday producing strong, damaging wind gusts. Some locations registered gusts above 55 mph.
Channel 9 follower Karen Annuza reported via twitter a toppled trailer over US 27 near exit 192, in Polk Co. In the pictures you can also see how a billboard was snapped and some cars crossed over flooded streets.
Along with the lingering end of the cold front moving south, there is unsettled weather in the middle and upper levels of the atmosphere moving from the Gulf of Mexico. This area produced storms earlier and another wave, much weaker and less extensive, could move over Central Florida to end the afternoon. There is still a chance for some passing, lingering showers during the rest of the afternoon.
Our team of meteorologists will be timing the second set of storms starting at 4 p.m. with chief certified meteorologist Tom Terry.
