Another Active Week of Weather Expected Across the South

The only thing normal about this February so far was the little bit of snow we saw yesterday in the western Carolinas. Other than that, the wild ride has been 70 degree temperatures, flooding rains, and tornadoes. And it does not appear that this fabulous February pattern will break anytime soon.

Flooding rains along with severe storms are a strong possibility across the Deep South this week, as yet another severe weather event unfolds across Dixie Alley. The heavy rains will extend into the Carolinas, so expect more rain this week. If we do have another severe threat, it would be on Thursday ahead of colder air moving in behind what could be record highs for our area.

The SPC already has a 30% chance of severe storms across Dixie Alley, which is unusual at 4 days in advance. This is the event we may have to watch once again here in the Carolinas on Thursday.

Valentine’s Day looks like things cool off, but it is only a temporary cold shot. We warm up again drastically early next week after.

Everyone stay safe this week, don’t drive into flooded or CLOSED roads, and check back for updates!
