Mother’s Day Severe Storms Could Target Midwest, South
The threat for severe weather will target a few pockets of the United States on Sunday, with the Midwest potentially looking like the main threat zone for damaging winds and perhaps some large hail.
A marginal risk for severe weather is in place for parts of the Midwest and south Florida, along with parts of New Mexico and Texas for Sunday.
The widest threat zone appears to be across parts of Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Kentucky for Sunday, where a cold front will trigger some stronger storms.
“Primary threat will be strong to damaging wind gusts and possibly some marginally severe hail,” the Storm Prediction Center wrote about Sunday’s severe weather threat across the Midwest.
That said, temperatures and dewpoints will be only marginal for severe weather. With temperatures mainly in the 50s and 60s and dewpoints only in the 40s, storms aren’t expected to be overly strong on Mother’s Day.
Across the South, a few stronger wind-producing storms could fire along the Florida Keys and far southern Florida, where heavy rain will be the primary threat this weekend.
Finally, a few stronger storms could fire in west Texas and eastern New Mexico. Large hail is expected to be the main threat across this region.
A few storms could pull east into New England and the Mid-Atlantic for Monday. We’ll have more on those storms as the threat gets closer.
