Wagswoofs – The National Weather Service has issued a tornado warning on Saturday morning, anticipating a hailstorm with a half an inch of hail. Millions of Americans in Louisiana and Mississippi are currently under tornado warnings until 4 a.m. CST, putting them at immediate risk.
The National Weather Service has issued a tornado warning for this Saturday, lasting from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m. The warning advises of the possibility of isolated hail, which could reach up to half an inch in size, as well as strong wind gusts of up to 65 mph.
Almost 3 million people, 907 schools, and 104 hospitals are at risk of potential exposure.
A severe weather warning has been issued due to a “rain plume” originating from the Gulf of Mexico. This weather system has resulted in severe thunderstorms and an elevated risk of tornadoes. While many parts of the United States are experiencing subzero temperatures, southern states such as Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Arkansas are preparing for heavy rainfall and the potential danger of flash flooding.
The U.S. Storm Prediction Center has also issued a “enhanced risk” warning this week. They are expecting heavy rain to cause flash flooding in the Southern Plains and lower Mississippi River basin, along with the threat of tornadoes.
Temperatures in the northern regions are expected to be mild, ranging from 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. However, there is a risk of snowfall in higher elevations.
According to The Weather Channel, there will be ongoing heavy rain in southern states throughout the next week. This rainfall is particularly significant for the region as it has been facing an unprecedented drought during the summer and early fall. Residents in the affected areas are advised to stay updated with weather forecasts and to take appropriate measures to ensure their safety in light of these severe weather conditions.
