US: South Braces for More Severe Weather as Cold Front Moves to the Northeast

A tornado touched down in the Atlanta area while severe weather threatened more than 100 million people across the Southern Plains through the Mid-Atlantic on Monday morning.

The severe weather isn’t over, though. 

The National Weather Service said there’s an enhanced risk of severe thunderstorms in Northeast Texas and Southeast Oklahoma. The greatest severe thunderstorm threat is expected to hit during the late afternoon Monday into the night, bringing very large hail, tornadoes, and intense damaging winds. 

A spring cold front moving through will bring multiple rounds of heavy rain and severe thunderstorms to the Southern Plains and Southeast on Monday and Tuesday. The cold front will move to the Northeast by Wednesday bringing showers and thunderstorms.
