“Today’s risk ranges from Iowa to the Gulf Coast. North storms are at high risk of wind damage, and farther south there is a higher tornado threat. Everyone will have dangerous lightning and possible flooding, “CNN meteorologist Myers told me.
The Storm Forecast Center issued an alert. “High risk” levels 3 out of 5 for tonight severe weather in northern Louisiana, eastern Arkansas, Mississippi, western central and southwest Tennessee. This level of risk is defined as “Many violent storms are possible,” according to the center.
Environment may “It led to rapid growth into a cluster of disintegrating storms and embedded supercells as the afternoon progressed,”; the National Weather Service in Little Rock said. This type of thunderstorm – a super cell – is most famous for producing tornadoes. But not all
The low pressure above the central plains has a cooling line to the south and east. This frigid front will be the main catalyst for the storm as it moves eastward.
In the afternoon, heavy rain and thunderstorms are likely to develop further near this front, from eastern Kansas to northeastern Texas. The Storm Prediction Center has this area in a level 1 out of 5 severe storm risk.
The mid and afternoon will be more lively and dangerous. The storm line tracks better conditions for tornadoes and other severe climates, including hail and high winds. These storms are likely to cover Missouri through eastern Texas and northern Louisiana.
By Wednesday evening, the storm will move through the lower Mississippi River region, where possible all forms of bad weather remain. Severe storms can occur as far north of Iowa and as far south as southeastern Texas and the southern Louisiana coast.
The storm will blow east until early Thursday to the southeast. But most extreme weather threats were likely to diminish at the time.
Flash floods are also a concern, with 1 to 2 inches of rain expected, but the localized amount may be closer to 2 to 4 inches.
“Soil saturation and water flow were significantly lower than the previous week. Still, it looks at above-average soil saturation. ”The weather forecast center cites current conditions in parts of Arkansas, Tennessee and Mississippi where flooding can occur. From the storm all night
Some of these storms, particularly southern parts of the Arkansas and Kansas line, may be training. Raging storms mean that they are moving to their original locations over a long period of time, worsening the risk of flooding.
The strong storm is still forecast until the end of this week. The forecasting center warned some severe storms, possibly from central Tennessee, through southeastern Louisiana and western Florida’s panhandle Thursday.
Then a new storm system moves into the country and another severe weather threat could strike across the South from Friday through Saturday.
These storms can create tornadoes with damaging winds and hail. But forecasts remain uncertain in terms of when and which areas are most at risk from these storms.
