21 Oct 2019, 4:44 am

The cold front that brought the numerous severe storms to the Southern Plains will bring more severe weather chances to areas of the Mississippi and Tennessee Valleys today.  Areas along the Gulf Coast could also see severe storms throughout the day. Here is the very latest.

Severe Outlook

Areas from east Texas towards the Ohio Valley could all see severe storms today with the highest risk for the Gulf Coast and Mississippi Valley.  These severe storms will be scattered and could produce more tornadoes, damaging winds and large hail.

Severe Risks

The wind and tornado risks will be the higher threats with only an isolated chance for hail that will be below severe criteria.


The intensity of the storms will start to weaken by this afternoon and evening along the front, with the exception down along the Gulf Coast.  Cities like Gulfport and Mobile could have severe storms for the evening commute home.  Keep checking with WeatherNation for more severe weather updates!
