A storm system bringing severe storms to the Plains will move into the Southeast for Wednesday and Thursday, keeping the threat of severe weather in the forecast. The Wednesday marginal risk extends along the Gulf of Mexico coastline from Texas to Florida, and northward to extreme Southern Virginia. Large hail, greater than the size of a quarter, is the biggest concern for Wednesday. Isolated tornadoes and damaging wind gusts are also possible. Storms may be ongoing in the morning and midday along a trough of low pressure ahead of the cold front. In the afternoon and evening, this line of storms will likely increase in intensity and coverage, with a few severe storms likely. Additional development is possible along the cold front. The strongest jet stream energy is expected to move offshore by Thursday, however, the cold front will lingering across Florida and into North and South Carolina, keeping a marginal severe weather threat in the forecast. The chance for strong or isolated severe storms will gradually push southeast across the Florida Peninsula Thursday morning through the mid-afternoon hours. Hail and wind damage will likely be the main threats, although isolated waterspouts or a brief tornado is possible. By Thursday evening, the threat for severe weather is expected to come to an end, however, some storms may continue to impact the Outer Banks until 8 or 9 pm Eastern.
