The severe weather threat in the South won't end tonight. The storm system over the Plains will make its trek toward the East Coast, fueling the risk for severe weather from the Gulf Coast through the eastern Great Lakes on Tuesday.
This puts Mississippi back at risk for tornadoes, but tornadoes could especially be possible in parts of Louisiana, Alabama and Tennessee as well, where there is a level 3 out of 5 severe weather risk.
"Large hail, damaging wind gusts and a few tornadoes will be likely along with rainfall rates in excess of an inch per hour," said the National Weather Service office in Jackson, Mississippi.
Rounds of thunderstorms and rain showers will traverse across the Ohio and Tennessee River Valleys throughout the day tomorrow. Farther south, scattered storms will likely develop midday from eastern Texas through Georgia.
The risk for severe weather will ramp up during the afternoon and evening hours. In addition to the storms in the Gulf Coast states, some of which will turn severe, a final line or two of strong storms will likely track east from the coast through the Ohio River Valley through Tuesday night.
Flash flooding will be possible across the South thanks to the combination of heavy rainfall and all the rain that has fallen in recent days and weeks. A widespread 1-3 inches of rain is forecast across this region into Tuesday night.
This line of storms should weaken by Wednesday morning as it approaches the East Coast of the US, but isolated severe weather will remain possible.
