The same cold front that brought strong storms and severe weather to parts of eastern Texas and Kentucky yesterday will bring another round of powerful storms to the South Sunday evening.
The strongest storms are likely to occur from New Orleans to Columbus, Birmingham, Huntsville, and Nashville.
While the thunderstorms will not be as potent as those from Saturday, gusty winds may take down tree branches, small hail could pelt your windshields, and torrents of rain could flood a few roadways. If you will be out and about or driving major interstates like I-10, I-55, I-20 or I-40, be on the lookout for changing skies. These storms will be slow-movers and produce blinding downpours and dangerous lightning.
More of the same is expected for Monday into Tuesday as the front stalls out over the region.
By the end of the day on Tuesday, as much as 2-4 inches of rain are possible from northern Louisiana into much of Mississippi and Tennessee.
Soaking rains and thunderstorms will lead to isolated flooding on area creeks, streams and rivers, in addition to low-lying and urban areas.
This is especially true across much of Louisiana and western Mississippi where tremendous rains from last week still have water levels running high.
