The Storm Prediction Center says there’s a marginal risk (level 1 out of 5) of severe storms in the area on Tuesday. Tropical Storm Eta continues to move away from Florida but the larger atmospheric pattern continues to show moisture rotating counterclockwise around the system, even hundreds of miles away. The primary risk is damaging winds, with a 5%-14% chance of damaging wind happening within 25 miles of where you are. The tornado and hail risk is very low.
