Severe weather expected late Monday

| April 3, 2017

VALDOSTA – South Georgia and North Florida could experience severe weather late Monday as a storm that has already brought tornadoes, large hail and damaging wind gusts continues to sweep through the South.

The main focus over Monday and Tuesday will be a line of thunderstorms that will move east along the Gulf coast. Winds from the south, unstable air, and wind shear could possibly lead to severe weather in Florida and Georgia, according to forecasts from WCTV.

Forecast models are hinting at rain beginning Monday afternoon after 2 p.m. just west of Tallahassee. The line of storms will continue east through midnight. Tornadoes, damaging wind gusts and large hail are all concerns with flash flooding also a possibility.

The outbreak of dangerous thunderstorms caused two tornadoes to be reported in Louisiana, damaging structures and injuring at least one person late Sunday afternoon, reports the Weather Channel.

A tornado was also spotted northwest of San Antonio, Texas, and hail the size of golf balls was observed in Texas and Louisiana.

Another round of severe storms may target parts of the South and East by midweek, according to TWC.
