After a Slow Season, There May Be a Major Tornado Outbreak This Weekend

After weeks of being stuck in neutral, tornado season is about to kick into high gear.

The National Weather Service is saying “strong tornadoes are possible” during a “significant multi-day severe event” set to begin this weekend from Texas to Tennessee.

According to the Storm Prediction Center, the tornado forecasting branch of the National Weather Service, a lingering low-pressure center will emerge from the southern Rockies on Saturday and quickly grow in strength.

By Saturday evening, the storm will tap into moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, kicking off a round of supercell thunderstorms with the potential to spawn a swath of tornadoes.

The threat will move slightly east on Sunday, and then into the Deep South on Monday.

The pattern is being held in place by an intense high-pressure block thousands of miles away in northeast Canada. In addition to possible tornadoes, large hail and heavy rains will be in the forecast for several days.
