Severe Weather Ongoing Across the Southeast

There is a tornado watch in effect from east central Mississippi into the north half of Georgia as well as south central Tennessee. These storms are shown to have a 'moderate' potential for tornadoes, as per the Storm Prediction Center.
Surface analysis is showing that the storms are originating along a cold front, with warm, unstable air being pulled onshore from the Gulf by the warm front curling around Tennessee and Georgia.
Because these storms are moving east-northeast, there is a potential for these storms to be 'training', or have many storms go over an area and produce a flooding rainfall situation, much like a long train going over the same train tracks.

Stay safe, everyone.
