…Numerous supercells with severe weather expected through early Monday morning…
A frontal boundary located between I-20 and Hwy 80/I-85, combined with an upper-level disturbance moving across the state has resulted in numerous supercells from midnight through 7 am. Very large hail up to the size of baseballs has been reported, which will continue through the remainder of the morning in this area. In addition, the threat of a couple of tornadoes will also be on the increase.
Another upper-level disturbance will move across the region beginning this afternoon. Numerous supercells will likely develop south of I-20 with all modes of severe weather, including very large hail, damaging winds, a few tornadoes, and localized flooding from this afternoon until 8 am Monday morning.
In the Enhanced Risk (orange shaded) area, hail to baseball size and a couple of EF2+ tornadoes are possible.
The storms will finally come to an end later Monday morning as a cold front pushes through the state.
It is critical you stay weather aware through Monday morning and have at least two methods to receive severe weather warnings.
