Severe Storms Firing Up – Bullseye Set on South Grasping up to Midwest
We’ve been following this Western upper-level low pressure disturbance dropping heavy snow over the state of Wyoming for the last 24 hours; however, this same storm will have an impact over the mid-west and mid-south today in the form of strong to severe storms.
The Storms Prediction Center has issued a Slight Risk ( where primary concern with any storms in the yellow-shaded area yield damaging winds, large hail, and the potential for an isolated tornado or two) for much of east Texas all the west into west Mississippi and as far north as Des Moines, IA.
There is a higher risk of tornado potential across portions of the ARK-LA-TEX where an enhanced risk has been in place for today. Places like Dallas, TX to Shreveport, LA all the way east into Greenville, MS need to be on high alert for tornadoes. Timing this afternoon through this evening/overnight tonight.
Tornado Watch has been issued for the ARK- LA-TEX region until 10pm CT. Remember, a watch means conditions are favorable for tornadoes so heed all warnings when/if they are issued. Stay tuned to WeatherNation and stay weather aware!
