Bad Storms Heading East, Tropical Troubles

October 13, 2012; 7:15 PM ET

The severe outbreak is underway, so far there are not too many reports but the worst may be tonight. Parts of the Midwest south into the Tennessee Valley should be hit tomorrow followed by a few strong storms along the East Coast on Monday.

Meanwhile, we have two tropical systems to watch, Rafael in the Atlantic and Paul in the Pacific.
