Severe Weather Threat Ongoing Across Parts of Texas, Louisiana; Risk Shifts East Tonight, Tomorrow

There is an ongoing risk for severe weather across parts of eastern Texas and Louisiana this afternoon. Thunderstorms capable of producing all modes of severe weather (tornadoes, damaging winds, and large hail) are occurring.

As a strong cold front associated with a midlatitude cyclone advances to the east, the risk for severe weather will shift into the remainder of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle overnight and tomorrow.

An enhanced (level 3 out of 5) risk for severe weather is in place for parts of east Texas, Louisiana, and west/central Mississippi today.

Severe weather outlook for Wednesday, December 14, 2022. Valid from 6 AM CST through 6 AM CST Thursday, December 15, 2022.

There is also an enhanced (level 3 out of 5) risk for southeast Louisiana, south/central Mississippi, southwest Alabama, and the western Florida Panhandle tomorrow.

Storms will be capable of producing tornadoes, damaging winds, and large hail. Given the kinematics and thermodynamics, a few strong tornadoes (EF-2+) will be possible.

Be sure to have a way to receive watches and warnings if you are in the risk area. Especially since there will be a risk for severe weather for some during the nighttime hours.
