Following a severe thunderstorm outbreak Sunday night into Monday across the central United States, severe storms will blast through the Ohio Valley to the Southeast toward midweek.
A powerful system is set to form across the Plains late this weekend and travel toward the Great Lakes as the middle of the week approaches.
A cold front and upper-level energy from the system will be responsible for igniting a line of powerful storms from Charleston, West Virginia to Atlanta, Georgia Tuesday.
“A squall line will is expected to march east through eastern portions of the Ohio and Tennessee valleys,” said AccuWeather Enterprise Solutions Storm Warning Meteorologist Kate Danna.
“The squall line will likely bring gusty winds with it due to the strong dynamics in place,” added Danna.
Folks in the path should be prepared for downed trees and power outages as these storms blast through.
