Here at WeatherNation, we are following several weather stories this Sunday. Severe Weather Threat Over the next few days, severe weather is likely across the southern and southeastern United States. Threats include strong damaging wind, large hail and isolated tornadoes. The most intense severe weather is expected for Monday across parts of Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia. In these areas an "Enhanced" risk has been issued by the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center. Coastal Storm Threat for the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic A coast storm threat still lingers for the northeastern United States, but more snow may actually fall across the mid-Atlantic region of the nation. The potential coastal storm will be a threat from Tuesday into Wednesday this week. Fire Concerns for the Southern Rockies and Great Plains Wind is forecast to gust up to 70 miles per hour across parts of Texas, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas this afternoon. Combining this with very low humidity, warmth and drought-stricken surfaces, Red Flag Warning are active for these areas. This means that conditions are very favorable for wildfires to occur. This fire threat continues into Sunday. Rain, Snow mid-week for the Weather United States A large storm system will sweep into the western United States bringing rain and snow. Heavy rain and snow could potentially be on the way for California and the Sierra Nevada. Tune into WeatherNation for the latest. For WeatherNation, I am Meteorologist Marcus Walter.
