When it comes to severe seasons, the south usually starts their season earlier than most. That looks to be the case as we end the month of February on a more active note. https://www.facebook.com/WeatherNation/videos/10156289181444874/ A strong low pressure system will be across the Midwest and collide with a very warm and humid air mass across the Southern Plains. In anticipation for the chance for severe, the Storm Prediction Center has issued a Slight Risk from eastern Texas to western Mississippi for Wednesday.   If you are not familiar with the different SPC Severe Thunderstorm Risks, Slight means that scattered severe storms will be possible. Also, damaging hail and wind will be possible along with one or two tornadoes.     Why are we thinking there's a risk for severe storms on Wednesday? Well, let's talk about the set-up. The low pressure is going to swing through a cold front on Wednesday evening. That will be where we get out lift from. Out a head of the front though, warm, moist air from the Gulf of Mexico is streaming into the region. There will also be a strong jet stream to help fuel strong storms.   Stay with WeatherNation Tuesday and into Wednesday as we track these storms. For WeatherNation, Meteorologist Kate Mantych
