Severe storms may erupt across southeastern US next week

The southeastern United States may face the return of severe weather, including tornadoes, next week.

The same winter storm threatening to spread disruptive snow and rain across the East could also trigger severe thunderstorms.

While the exact track and strength of the storm will determine the extent of the severe weather danger, areas from the central Gulf Coast to Florida and the coastal Carolinas are on alert for potentially violent thunderstorms.

The danger should unfold generally from west to east from Monday night to Wednesday.

Some of the same communities at risk are still cleaning up from the damage left behind in the wake of the damaging thunderstorms and tornadoes from earlier this week.

The strongest thunderstorms next week will be capable of producing damaging winds, hail, downpours and tornadoes.

"The threat of a few tornadoes looks highest across southern Georgia and northeastern Florida Tuesday afternoon and evening," AccuWeather Enterprise Solutions Storm Warning Meteorologist Alex Avalos said.

Residents should also use the preceding quiet weather to review severe weather preparedness tips, especially with more severe weather outbreaks to follow this spring.
