Severe storms menace nearly 40 million in South as multiday threat of tornadoes, hail, wind begins
Fox Forecast Center - Mar 1, 2023
The FOX Forecast Center is tracking an active springlike pattern that will produce an extended threat of severe weather from Texas through the Southeast starting on Wednesday and lasting through the end of the workweek.
Computer forecast models show a series of storm systems will tap into the available moisture and produce the threat of hail, damaging winds and tornadoes.
The severe weather threat comes after a deadly outbreak that impacted the Plains, Mississippi and Ohio valleys, but the FOX Forecast Center believes the upcoming multiday threat will be centered over areas farther south and potentially have wider impacts.
"We definitely are starting the month off with a lot of lioness behavior," FOX Weather meteorologist Britta Merwin said. "The weather is going to be impactful. We’re really focusing on northeast Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas – some areas that have been hit hard over the last month."
