A significant severe weather episode is expected tomorrow across portions of the lower Mississippi River Valley and Deep South region. This threat will include tornadoes, a few of which could be strong and/or long tracked.
The area at greatest risk of severe weather (as shown in red and purple on the above image) includes a total population of approximately 8.4 million, which includes approximately 3.2 million single family homes.
Strong to severe thunderstorms are likely to be ongoing near sunrise on Tuesday along the Western edge of the risk area (in the Houston, TX area), with strong, gusty winds and spotty hail the primary concern. As the activity moves and develops Eastward during the day, the threat of large hail, damaging winds and scattered tornadoes will increase across the indicated areas.
