Severe Threat Begins Today, Ramps-Up through Mid-Week...

In a fashion similar to that of last week, a threat of severe weather is forecast to develop out over the central Plains today:


...spreading slowly toward the Southeast for Monday:


...and Tuesday (when coverage will likely increase):


By Wednesday, the threat will spread from central Texas into the middle Mississippi Valley, along and ahead of a strengthening cold front:


Each day, large hail, damaging winds and a few tornadoes will be possible.  The tornado threat will be lowest today, and increase somewhat each day thereafter.  On Wednesday, the primary mode of severe weather is likely to become a line of storms along the cold front, so the highest tornado potential that day will be with any storm that is able to form out ahead of the main line and remain relatively isolated.

If you live across the aforementioned areas, please stay alert in the upcoming days and make sure that you have a way to receive weather warnings, and that your best sheltering location has been prepared and is ready to go just in case!
