Active Severe Weather Pattern into this Weekend
More severe thunderstorms are ahead into this weekend from the Plains into the Southeast. For tonight, a Tornado Watch has been issued in Central Georgia. A marginal severe weather threat continues from the Eastern Great Lakes through to the Southeast and also in the Central Plains.
A cold front stretching out from the Northeast to the Gulf of Mexico will fire showers and thunderstorms tonight. Upper level energy will help to enhance severe storms in Georgia this evening. More strong storms are possible tonight with a low moving out of the Front Range into the Plains.
On Friday, the low pressure center in the Plains will push toward the Ohio Valley. Severe thunderstorms are possible with the warm front ahead of the low and near the cold front dragging along with the system. Isolated tornadoes are possible ahead of the low pressure center.
Additional severe thunderstorms are possible Saturday as another low develops along the front and moves across Texas. An enhanced risk is already centered near the Arklatex.
As the system slowly pushes to the Southeast, severe weather is possible Sunday from the Tennessee Valley to the Gulf of Mexico. Rich moisture will funnel ahead of a cold front pushing through the region, helping to fuel severe weather.
