Today in Weather History

On October 8th, 2008, the southern region of the country had its fair share of severe weather. That day, a surface low pressure system was stationed over the state of Alabama with a cold front extending from the southwestern part of the state to western Florida. This frontal boundary promoted the presence of severe weather, having created eight total tornadoes over Alabama, Georgia, and Florida. Of these, according to the National Weather Service, two were EF1 and six were EF0.

Below is a photo from Panama, FL, where a tornadic waterspout moved inland and stirred up trouble.
