Tornado Watches (above and below) have been issued until 4pm EST this afternoon. Damaging wind gusts and hail are likely with severe storms in both of these watch areas. In my opinion, based on the latest trends, the greatest risk of tornadoes is within the Carolinas and Virginia area watch.
Folks living all across this region should have their sheltering plans in place and be ready to take cover if threatening weather approaches.
