Severe Weather Risk- Starkville, MS and Leesburg, VA
This the current severe weather outlook according to the Storm Prediction Center. Areas highlighted in dark red have the highest risk of severe weather Monday afternoon. As a cold front pushes east across the entire eastern U.S. during the afternoon, a line of thunderstorms will likely be associated with it. Around Starkville a few thunderstorms may develop ahead of the line given the ample amount of moisture and moderate instability. The greatest risk from thunderstorms tomorrow will be strong winds in excess of 60 MPH and heavy rain. Tornadoes are possible but will not be too much of a threat due to the lack of wind shear. Expect thunderstorms to move through during the afternoon, likely between 2 and 4PM.
There is also a risk for severe weather in Leesburg, however it will not be until after sunset. Expect a line of strong thunderstorms to move through ahead of the cold front after sunset, mostly likely between 8 and 10PM. These thunderstorms will also be capable of producing strong winds in excess of 60 MPH and heavy rain. I will keep this updated as severe weather develops.
