Southeast Storms: Thursday Severe Weather Risk From Missouri to Georgia

Southeast storms on Thursday are expected to bring severe thunderstorms and possible flash flooding to parts of Missouri, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, and the Carolinas. 

Storms were moving across north-central Missouri and eastern Tennessee, northern Georgia and the western Carolinas Thursday morning, and would move into other areas of the southeast by Thursday night, AccuWeather reported.

“Farther to the north, a new batch of heavy, gusty, and locally severe thunderstorms move out of southeastern Iowa and into part of western and southern Illinois and areas of Missouri along the Mississippi River,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said. “Late Thursday night, this batch of storms may return downpours to parts of western Kentucky and northwestern Tennessee.” 

The Southeast storms may bring damaging winds, downpours of an inch or more, and hail to the affected areas, many of which have already experienced multiple downpours in recent days, AccuWeather reported. 

Winds from a thunderstorm on Monday caused the death of a teen Boy Scout in Georgia when a tree fell on a tent where he sought shelter. A microburst may have caused the tree to fall, Accuweather said, and there were dozens of other trees downed in the area by the storm. 

Parts of the Carolinas also experienced flooding and scattered power outages from storms on Monday, AccuWeather reported. 

Severe weather threats in the Southeast will lessen Friday in most areas, with a few storms in the Deep South having potential to be locally gusty or heavy, AccuWeather reported.
