Severe storms with hail, possible tornadoes expected Monday


Severe Weather Awareness Week starts March 26, and a statewide tornado drill will be March 28.

The chance for severe storms continues through Tuesday, but a cold front expected to come through that night should leave South Georgia dry and cooler the rest of the week, both forecasters said.

The threat will be isolated and the primary concern would be hail and gusty winds.

Our chance of severe weather begins around 3 PM Monday afternoon and will last until 10 PM Monday night.

The spring severe weather season is the most active season across the twin states.

Stay updated this afternoon with your First Alert Weather App.

With multiple atmospheric features in play, timing is more hard than usual. Tornadoes, strong winds, and very large hail are possible with any storms that develop. You can watch our TV signal, monitor First Alert Doppler Radar, get warnings and so much more.

The Storm Prediction Center has placed all of East Texas under a SLIGHT RISK for strong to severe storms for the remainder of the day today and through around midnight tonight. Any type of severe weather will be possible - including damaging winds, hail, and tornadoes.

You still have time to make sure you're prepared for severe storms.

Unknowns: The specific track of the storm is going to dictate a lot.

Not everyone will see storms, but if a storm does go up in your area, it does have the potential to turn strong and potentially severe.

Have your NOAA Weather Radio programmed with fully-charged batteries available. If you live in a mobile home make plans to wait out the storms in a storm shelter or a site built structure.
