A severe weather threat is expected to unfold across parts much of the region tomorrow, and Saturday.
Setup: A storm system will move across the Midwest tomorrow and Saturday, bringing a cold front east across the region.
Storms will develop along and ahead of the front as it pushes through the region, and the parameters, such as instability and high dew points, will be in place to allow for some of them to become strong to severe.
Placement: The severe weather threat tomorrow will be across East Texas, much of Louisiana, and West Mississippi tomorrow, with the greatest threat being where the Storm Prediction Center has hatched a “slight” risk for severe weather.
The threat will then push into Southeast Louisiana, much of Mississippi and Alabama, and the Western Florida Panhandle on Saturday, with the greatest threat again being where the Storm Prediction Center has hatched a “slight” risk for severe weather.
Timing: As of now, it looks like storms will develop across East Texas late tomorrow, and push into Louisiana and West Mississippi overnight. From there, they will likely progress across the remainder of Mississippi, and much of Alabama and the Florida Panhandle throughout the day Saturday into Saturday evening.
Threats: Damaging winds and hail appear to be the most likely hazards at this time. However, an isolated tornado or two is also a concern.
