Southern US continues to face extreme weather

Southern US continues to face extreme weather, a storm system passing through the southern United States has already brought at least 150 severe weather warnings from Texas to South Carolina, including 7 confirmed tornadoes so far — one in Texas and six in Mississippi.

Wind gusts up to 74 mph were also reported in parts of Alabama, and 60 mph in parts of Florida. Hail has been reported in Mississippi up to the size of an egg. Several reports of fallen trees and power lines have been recorded and a few scattered cases of damaged homes in the region so far from this severe storm outbreak.

Flash flooding also occurred in parts of Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. While no official reports of rainfall have yet been released, radar estimates that some areas of the region ranged from 3 to as much as 6 inches of rain, primarily in and around Hattiesburg, Birmingham and Central Georgia.
The strongest storms this morning are over northern Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.

Tornado warnings have been issued for some of these states, with the eastern edge of these warnings in effect until 11 AM EDT. Additionally, flash flood alerts are also in effect for some of the Southeast due to ongoing heavy rain in the area.

This morning there is an elevated chance of severe storms in parts of the Carolinas, where strong winds, large hail and tornadoes are predicted to have the greatest chance.

This afternoon the extreme threat will end as the storm moves out into the sea. There are also two other mechanisms that could carry extreme weather to other areas of the U.S. Tuesday and Midnight. A fast-moving cold front enters the Northeast U.S. on Tuesday, and tap into some relatively warmer weather. Forecast models indicate a line of storms that will likely pass through Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey followed on Tuesday afternoon by parts of New England. With this line of storms it will be possible to get strong winds, hail and heavy rain.

Unfortunately, another cycle will fly to the West Coast today and arrive in the Southern Plains on Wednesday. The storm system will likely trigger another round of severe weather as it arrives from Texas to Mississippi. Like the last few rounds of storms, this threat will concentrate much more on Texas and the I-35 corridor in Oklahoma.

Climatologically speaking, the extreme threats are expected to nudge closer and closer to the southern Plains, followed by the central Plains as we head into May, when the severe weather normally escalates rapidly.
