A strong upper-level storm system located just east of the Rocky Mountains will move eastward, bringing a significant threat of severe weather from Texas to Florida.
That same system will then move Northeast toward the Carolinas.
If you have travel plans that include the Gulf states, especially Louisiana or Southern Mississippi or Alabama, be vigilant.
The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, OK has put these areas under a "Moderate Risk" category for severe weather, something not usually seen in December.
High moisture levels, Spring-like temperatures and strong upper-level winds will come together to provide the perfect breeding ground for strong and severe storms throughout much of the Southeast. This setup could easily produce supercell thunderstorms, which can spawn strong, long-track tornadoes. In addition to the tornado threat, straight-line winds could gust over 70 mph.
The Carolinas will be impacted by this system on Wednesday. There is a slight risk of severe weather as this system comes in, most likely in the form of damaging winds.
