Severe thunderstorms have been developing from the Deep South into the Mid Atlantic this afternoon and more severe cells are likely this evening. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch continues in Texas, with a Tornado Watch from Florida to South Carolina. Additional watches may be needed later tonight. The Jet Stream is diving into the Southeast as a deep trough moves through the region, creating the severe weather risk.
In the Southeast, there is a slight risk for severe thunderstorms along the Atlantic Ocean in South Carolina and Georgia. Isolated tornadoes are possible, along with strong wind gusts above 60 mph.
In South Texas, large hail greater than an inch in diameter is the biggest concern this evening. Houston, San Antonio, and Corpus Christi are all in the severe weather threat area.
Two cold fronts are moving through the South and Southeast. Both systems will be the focus for severe thunderstorms this evening.
Areas from Central Florida to South Carolina have the potential to see severe thunderstorms on Wednesday.
