Going to go right by/over the speedway in Daytona. Lots of folks down in that area for the Rolex 24 next weekend.

Maybe I'm missing something but with the exception of the initial DeLand couplet, none of these look overwhelmingly strong. Not much on CC either. Still a dangerous situation though.

What saved the past few days from being a much larger outbreak geographically was the lack of inland progression of the warmfront. Had that warm front made it to at least the I-20/59 corridor, we could have been talking about one of the larger cold season outbreaks given a lot of the wasted kinematics.

But, a high risk? Prelim storm reports don't support the issuance of today's high risk. Of course, that doesn't take anything away from the awful destruction of today's tornado in Albany and other tornadoes. My thoughts and prayers are with those folks.

I know we had a large tornado today but it feels like this thing busted for most of the high risk area.
It busted by their very own definition. It's always good to back and re-analyze what went wrong to improve on the next forecast. But, this this has been quite a multi-day outbreak....which actually began back on Thursday with the initial trough....

High risk - An area where a severe weather outbreak is expected from either numerous intense and long-tracked tornadoes or a long-lived derecho-producing thunderstorm complex that produces hurricane-force wind gusts and widespread damage.
