The weather, currently.
Behind a cool and damp Monday, lies weather that may have you sniffling for no reason
Behind a cool and damp Monday, lies weather that may have you sniffling for no reason
To no one’s surprise, we’re ringing in the spring season with… rain. A damp and relatively raw day is on tap for the first day of the work week with rainfall that will increase in coverage into the afternoon when the intensity could tick up into the moderate to heavy range. Temperatures will struggle to surpass the 50°F mark tomorrow before a vernal turn-around quickly commences on Tuesday when highs soar to a glorious 70°F for the first time in over five months. Tuesday’s March warmth in combination with increasing sunshine will have us considering the institution of a faux sick day. — Lauren Casey
What you need to know, currently.
Jack Sillin
Tuesday is likely to be a dangerous severe weather day, partly due to a high-end combination of atmospheric parameters & partly due to who might be most impacted.

Many of the counties in the D3 ENH/MDT areas are also in the top quintile of housing/transport-related vulnerability
The first week of spring ushers in the threat of severe weather across the South and Southeast U.S. including tornadoes, hail, and thunderstorms. 
Starting out on Monday, the severe weather is likely to be most impactful in the eastern half of Texas, bringing the possibility of hail, strong winds, and tornadoes. 
Tuesday is likely to be the most intense day, moving to Louisiana and Mississippi. Large tornados are possible and have the potential to occur at night— making them even more dangerous. 
On Wednesday, the system will move towards southern Alabama, Georgia, and into northern Florida, the Carolinas.  
We are already seeing a highly active tornado season which typically runs from March through June and peaks in May. Meteorologists say that drought conditions will fuel a more intense tornado season.
There is a high likelihood that vulnerable communities may be impacted by these storms. If you, or someone you know, is located in a risk zone, this is the perfect time to brush up on tornado safety and familiarize yourself with the closest tornado shelter.
