Tuesday Severe Weather Chances in the Southeast

13 Jan 2020, 5:00 am

The South experienced severe storms Friday and Saturday due to a potent storm system. The front that sparked those storms has stalled out across the Southeast, producing heavy rain and some thunderstorms. Isolated severe storms are possible today (Monday) and again on Tuesday in the Mississippi and Tennessee Valleys.

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a Marginal risk for severe storms Tuesday. There will be ample humidity to produce severe storms across the entire Southeast thanks to a steady supply of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico. Instability will remain low to moderate, keeping storm coverage isolated in nature.

The front will be the primary focus for thunderstorm development. Heavy rain is possible with the high humidity in the atmosphere. A few storms could produce large hail and damaging wind gusts. The threat for tornadoes is low.

The wet weather pattern will continue this week for several cities in the Southeast.
