People in the Mississippi River Valley could be in for some dangerous weather Tuesday, the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center warns.
Very cold air surging southeastward will clash with warm, moist air coming up from the Gulf of Mexico; a line of severe thunderstorms is expected to erupt along the cold front that separates the two air masses, CNN meteorologist Sean Morris said.
"This could be a particularly dangerous and deadly event due to the rapid movement of the storms and the tornado threat increasing during the overnight hours, causing people in the storms' paths to be caught unaware," Morris said.
A few of these storms could produce tornadoes across parts of Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi and Louisiana.
Apart from tornadoes, these storms could produce damaging thunderstorm winds that could cause injuries and fatalities, knock down trees and cause widespread power outages and property damage.
Cities included in the moderate risk area, which is the region most likely to experience tornadoes, include:
Cities included in the slight risk area, where damaging thunderstorm winds and isolated tornadoes are possible, include:
The severe weather threat will continue into Wednesday across the Southeast, Morris said. The primary threat will be damaging thunderstorm winds and isolated tornadoes. States that could experience severe thunderstorms and tornadoes on Wednesday include:
These are some of the same areas whose Congressmen held up funding relief for superstorm Sandy – I sure hope they don't need help someday......
Oh, they'll get the help they need. The Democrats in Congress aren't as vindictive as you or me.
The gov steps in to help.When did you ever hear of the super rich doing the same?The south has been brain washed for generations...
Ain't that the truth.
We had thunderstorm in Wisconsin lust night, now its very worm.. Just very strange weather considering that this is January.
Global warming causing climate change. Can beer be brewed in this sort of weather?
Sure, beer makers motto is :..."Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these 'beer makers" from the swift completion of their appointed rounds" :-)
Oh..thank God Alina!

So don't take any shots , but its your responsibility that your kids did.
I believe we will have some really crazy spring coming out...Tornadoes probably will start early.
Well, best of luck! You know, I like Wisconsin. When I was a kid we'd go to Devil's Lake and to the Dells. At the lake we used to pull the leeches off our feet and put them in a tin can in the sun. Kinda cruel, but you know kids.
So how long, and exactly what has the Pres known about this? And how about Hillary? I smell a cover-up!
