Forecasters say severe thunderstorms and tornadoes are possible in the Tallahassee area tomorrow. The threat is greatest close to the coast from Panama City to the Big Bend.

But he says a wide swath of land from the Gulf Coast to South Central Georgia could see severe weather more associated with summer conditions.
