There is a risk for tornadoes today associated with Tropical Storm Cindy along the Gulf of Mexico coastline as squalls crash ashore, spinning around the system. The risk extends from the Florida Panhandle to Louisiana.
As a cold front and low pressure center moves across the Plains, there is a threat for severe thunderstorms from Minnesota to Texas Panhandle. The tornado risk is low, but a few storms will likely produce large hail and strong winds.
Severe thunderstorms on Thursday will still be possible around Tropical Storm Cindy in the Mississippi Delta. A severe weather threat will also continue from the Plains into the Great Lakes. On Friday, severe weather chances diminish, although there is a slight risk in the Northeast and Tennessee Valley.
