Southeastern U.S. Under Threat of Severe Weather

Millions of people across the Southeast are under a severe weather alert, including heavy rain and possibly isolated tornadoes, through Wednesday night. 

Heavy rain that could cause flash flooding is forecasted to impact the region from Tennessee Valley through to Kentucky. This area includes Nashville, which faced significant damage due to flooding over the weekend.

Over 39 million people in Louisiana through the Mid-Atlantic could be impacted by severe storms. The largest impact will be from straight line winds coming from the Gulf Coast through the Carolinas. This area could see isolated tornadoes alongside these storms as well. 

Temperatures are expected to plummet overnight to sub-freezing numbers with the potential for snow after the severe weather passes.

By the end of the weekend, warm temperatures are forecasted all over the country except for portions of the Northwest and Florida.
