Severe storms likely Monday

Tracy Craig | 03 April, 2017, 03:19

The Storm Prediction Center has much of north centralLouisiana and a small portion of extreme southwest MS in a "moderate" risk for severe weather. There will be a threat for damaging winds, hail, and isolated tornadoes, especially over the southern part of our area. After the line moves out into the Atlantic, much improved weather will be seen under partly cloudy skies. A Flood Advisory was also issued for Grimes, Harris, Montgomery and Waller Counties until 10:15 a.m. Rain and storm chances increase dramatically Sunday afternoon. A cold front will move east across Texas tonight while a separate area of low pressure forms over northern Mexico with a warm front extending from this low east across the Gulf of Mexico. Those clouds will lower and thicken up, leading to a 40% chance of rain and thunderstorms by the time we head into Saturday night.

This weekend another jet stream disturbance will likely fire off more severe weather and heavy rain in the South, and this threat will continue into early next week.

Local certified storm chaser Aaron Canaday said the first round of weaker storms will hit in the early morning hours today. Most likely not across the entire area, but in certain spots.

Some of the storms that develop this morning and this afternoon could be strong.

All the parameters are coming together for an active day across a large portion of Texas and Louisiana on Sunday.

Analysts said ties between India and Malaysia have improved in recent years giving economic cooperation stronger roots. The trip, at the invitation of Mr Modi, is Mr Najib's third to India since he assumed office in 2009.

The main threats associated with Sunday's storms will be large hail, damaging winds and flooding. Embedded circulations will also pose a tornado risk.

The area of the tornado watch stretches from Danville to Virginia Beach, as far south as Elizabeth City and as far north as Petersburg.

Convective watches may be necessary by late Monday morning.

Widespread street flooding with some areas getting anywhere from three to six inches of rain in a short period of time is possible overnight.
