Tornado was touched in the Atlanta area as over 100 million people are at risk of severe storms



A tornado warning was issued around noon. 10.30 and lasted until kl. 11.15 ET, which threatened about 450,000 people in its potential path, according to the National Weather Service in Atlanta. There were no reports of injuries, the NWS said.

The storm that led to the warning is moving to the eastern metro area and is weakening. A severe thunderstorm warning was in effect until 6 p.m. 12 for parts of central DeKalb and southwestern Gwinnett counties, including Lawrenceville, Lilburn, and Stone Mountain.

Overall, a tornado is in effect until 6 p.m. 16.00 ET for parts of Georgia and Alabama, including Atlanta, Macon and Montgomery, as further thunderstorms could produce a few tornadoes in this watch area through the afternoon. Hail up to 1

inch and damaging winds up to 70 mph are also possible with some of these storms.

The alarms came a day after tornadoes hit at least three cities in Mississippi, causing damage to buildings and shutting down the power. The same storm system that created tornadoes over the weekend is still on the move, bringing the threat of severe storms over southeastern Monday.

In addition, a new system is developing across the plains, which will trigger a separate eruption of severe weather during the night.

Tornadoes probably in the southern plain and the Ohio River Valley

Storm Prediction Center's prospects for severe weather Monday through Monday night
The greatest risk of severe weather through Monday night will be from Oklahoma through Indiana, where there is level 3 out of 5, increased risk, according to the Storm Prediction Center. This includes Louisville and Evansville in Indiana and Fort Smith, Fayetteville and Jonesboro in Arkansas.
This region has the best chance of seeing a tornado and damaging winds, but heavy hail is also a threat, especially in northern Texas and eastern Oklahoma.

Showers and storms Monday morning leave the Ohio River Valley at noon, while the southern plains remain dry most of the day.

Damage reported in at least 3 cities after tornadoes torn through the Mississippi
By late afternoon, moving thunderstorms quickly begin to form and they will continue into the night. Some of these storms are expected to be supercells that spin and can produce tornadoes. This tornado threat continues on Monday night.
“A tornado risk could continue overnight as storms move from Oklahoma to parts of Arkansas / southern Missouri and approach the Mississippi River late,” according to the Storm Prediction Center.

Storms can also get severe in Dallas and Chicago, but the best chance is between these two cities.

Storm surges are possible overnight, so some places can be hit by more than one storm – perhaps more than a severe storm.

These storms may not reach the western Ohio River Valley until early Tuesday morning, possibly affecting cities including Nashville, Indianapolis, St. Louis and more. Louis and Louisville.

Severe storms are also possible in the Southeast

Forecast for Wednesday
Another area for severe weather today will be in the southeast. A level 2 out of 5, a small risk is in place for Charleston, Atlanta and Birmingham.

Marginal, level 1 out of 5, chances of severe storms stretching from the deep south through the Mid-Atlantic. Cities including Washington, Richmond and Charlotte are all included in this risk area.

Unlike in the central United States, the threat in the southeast will be primarily in daylight.

Thunderstorms are already tracing across inner parts of the Southeast Monday morning. There will likely be a break from this rain, at least a few hours noon before a new round develops.

This round should be monitored for severe storms this afternoon and evening. Reports of tornadoes, hail and damaging winds are expected with some of these storms.

Local flash flooding is possible with any of the day’s storms, and in some places measuring 1 to 3 inches of rain.

Many states in the southeast have seen double their normal rainfall over the past month, so even 1 to 2 inches of extra rain can lead to flash flooding.

Storm storms to the east Tuesday

Storm Prediction Center's prospects for severe weather Monday through Monday night
However, the threat does not end on Monday. The storm system over the plains will take its turn towards the east coast and promotes the risk of severe weather from the Gulf Coast through the eastern great lakes on Tuesday.

This puts a state like Mississippi at risk of tornadoes, but tornadoes may be possible especially in parts of Louisiana, Alabama and Tennessee, where there is a level 3 out of 5 severe weather risk.

“Heavy hail, damaging gusts of wind and a few tornadoes are likely to be accompanied by precipitation of over an inch per hour,” said the National Weather Service office in Jackson, Mississippi.

This is how a thunderstorm produces a tornado

A few showers and storms could be possible during the day, especially in the Tennessee River Valley, but the main event will be Tuesday night through Tuesday night across the Gulf Coast states.

It is expected that a grinding line will form, creating widespread storms. This line is expected to reach as far north as the Great Lakes, but the storms are likely to be more scattered.

Flash flooding is possible all over the South thanks to the combination of heavy rainfall and all the rain that has fallen in recent days and weeks. A widespread 1-3 inch of rain is expected across this region by Tuesday night.

On Wednesday, this line of storm was to weaken Wednesday morning as it approaches the east coast of the United States, but isolated severe weather will continue to be possible.
