Severe Storms to Sweep Across the South

A band of severe storms will develop across the South Saturday midday and afternoon. During the first few hours of the event, a tornado threat will exists until the storms form into a squall line that will produce mainly wind damage.

The radar depiction for Noon EST shows the storms during the phase when a tornado threat may occur. Later in the afternoon, the threat turns into a wind damage threat across Mississippi and Louisiana. Heavy rains will also cause additional flooding into areas already hit by flooding Thursday and Friday.
