After thunderstorms lit up from Oklahoma to Tennessee to round out the weekend, severe storms will rumble across the Southeast into Monday night.
Senior Meteorologist John Kocet warned for impending severe weather across the Southeast on Sunday.
Places from Cape Girardeau, Mo., to Nashville, Tenn., to Birmingham, Ala., to Atlanta, Ga., to Jacksonville, Fla., will need to be on alert for damaging thunderstorms.
A frontal boundary draped across the Southeast will provide the spark for severe thunderstorms. Cool air from the north will clash with warm and humid air from the Gulf of Mexico, creating a battle zone for thunderstorms to thrive.
Multiple rounds of storms will fire along this boundary. Thunderstorms tracked across Tennessee, northern Alabama, northern Georgia and southern South Carolina this morning, bringing torrential downpours, gusty winds and some hail.
This cluster of storms is rolling off the southern Atlantic Coast into the evening.
Daytime heating from today, combined with high humidity will prime the atmosphere for violent thunderstorms.
In addition to the storms that roll into southern Georgia and northeastern Florida, a fresh batch of powerful storms will erupt across eastern Missouri, southern Illinois and western Kentucky this evening. These storms will then continue to push to the south and east during the overnight hours.
The greatest threats include damaging wind gusts past 60 mph. Strong gusty winds can bring down trees and power lines, leading to power outages.
Some of the strongest storms can produce large hail to the size of ping pong balls. Hailstones of this magnitude can cause damage to windows and tender vegetation.
While the threat for tornadoes is low, a twister or two touching down and causing destruction cannot be ruled out.
Due to the fact that the boundary separating cool air from moist air will be very slow moving, additional threats for severe thunderstorms will continue into the day on Tuesday.
The pattern has the potential to drop a great deal of rain on localized areas.
According to Expert Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski, "Where storms repeat hour after hour or day after day, the risk of flash flooding is elevated."
Be sure to have a plan in place before severe weather threatens. Heed all watches and warnings and keep in mind a safe place to retreat to in the event that thunderstorms are bearing down on your area.
