Southern U.S. Weather Forecast

Severe thunderstorms with possible tornadoes and heavy rain will threaten portions of the South through the day.

The threat will extend from central and eastern Mississippi in the morning to Alabama, northern Florida and southern Georgia.

Damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes will all be possible with this powerful storm.

In addition, heavy downpours may trigger flash flooding. Rain totals of 1 to 4 inches with locally higher 4"+ amounts will soak most locations from near the lower-Mississippi Valley eastward.

Temperatures will remain well above average across the majority of the South.

The exception will be northeast Georgia, northern South Carolina and North Carolina from high pressure wedging down east of the Appalachians. Highs will hold in the 40s and 50s in portions of these states.
