Southern Storm Brings Severe Storms

March 13, 2014; 9:23 AM ET


The GFS and ECMWF seem to be in some agreement now on the track of the storm across the South. The DGEX and Canada still bring a significant storm north with heavy snow across the southern Ohio Valley into Appalachians and a major snow event across the Northeast. I like the track staying south of these areas with the main impact being severe storms and locally heavy rains across the South. The map below shows the area of severe weather across the South. The low-level jet strengthens across Alabama into Georgia late Sunday night into midday Sunday which implies the storms may remain severe overnight Saturday into Sunday morning. Right now, the impacts seem to be damaging winds and flooding rains, but if the low-level jet and dew points come up, we may have a early morning tornado outbreak.
