There will be a significant coast to coast storm system crossing our country this week.  In some states, this storm will produce blizzard conditions.  Across much of the South, Severe Weather will be a significant risk.

The Storm Prediction Center has outlined a rather significant Severe Risk west of us in Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas and Texas on Tuesday, including the threat of tornadoes.  On Wednesday, SPC shows the strongest severe weather threat across SE Mississippi and SW Alabama.  We’ll continue to watch for any changes in this threat level as we get closer to this event.  

Following the two cold fronts late next week, temperatures will turn sharply cooler from about Friday the 16th and beyond.
