Tornadoes, Large Hail Possible Across South Monday


A potentially significant severe weather outbreak could bring tornadoes, large hail and damaging straight-line winds for much of the South on Monday, potentially including Oklahoma City and Dallas.

A strong area of low pressure will develop in the eastern Rocky Mountains on Monday afternoon, and a trailing cold front and dry line will set the stage for a strong line of storms to form across western Kansas down through central Texas. Storms are expected to fire between noon and 3pm around Lubbock and Abilene, Texas, and the line will move east. The greatest threat for tornadoes and the most extreme severe weather is expected to be concentrated around Wichita Falls, Texas and Elk City, Oklahoma, before the line of storms pushes east after dark. For Oklahoma City and Dallas, the greatest sever weather threat appears to be late at night.

On Tuesday, the line moves quickly eastward into southern Missouri, Arkansas and Louisiana, potentially impacting Shreveport, Louisiana, Little Rock, Arkansas and Jackson, Mississippi.

All modes of severe weather are possible on both Monday and Tuesday, including tornadoes, large hail and winds exceeding 60 miles-per-hour. By Wednesday, the severe threat diminishes as the primary line moves into Georgia and the Carolinas.
