The week started off wet and stormy in the South and an active evening is in store for severe weather along the southern Atlantic Seaboard.
The same system responsible for rounds of rain and gusty storms on Sunday in the Deep South will be the driving force behind these storms, focusing from Florida to the Carolinas.
As the storms move along with their blind downpours and shifting winds, flight delays and cancellations can mount.
The storms started the day over Alabama and the Florida Panhandle and will shift eastward toward the Atlantic coast through Monday evening.
This area includes the cities of Augusta and Savannah, Ga.; Tallahassee and Jacksonville, Fla., Charleston and Columbia, S.C.; and Fayetteville, Wilmington and Raleigh, N.C.
Gusty winds and blinding downpours appear to be the main threats from these thunderstorms with some stronger storms capable of spinning up a few brief tornadoes.
Heavier downpours associated with these storms may also result in flash and low-lying area flooding.
Folks headed to Augusta, Ga., for the practice rounds for the 2014 Masters should prepare for this weather and know where to seek shelter if one of these storms moves through.
Not only will the threat of severe weather be found over the Southeast, but also in isolated fashion over the Ohio Valley.
These storms are not forecast to become as violent as those farther south, but they can still produce damaging wind and hail.
The threat of severe weather is expected to diminish later Monday night, but the system will continue to delver rain to portions of the East through Tuesday.
This will continue the threat for flooding, particularly in parts of New England where snowmelt will contribute to flooding.
According to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski, "During the day Tuesday, a pocket of chilly air high above the ground can produce showers and gusty thunderstorms with hail over the lower Mississippi Valley."
