Two areas of gusty and locally severe thunderstorms will bring dangerous conditions and disruptions to daily activities in the South into Tuesday evening.
As the storms rumble through large metro areas such as Miami; Jackson, Miss.; Birmingham, Ala.; Memphis, Tenn.; and New Orleans, flight delays are possible and poor visibility and runoff can slow traffic on roadways.
Thunderstorms will ramp up ahead of an advancing cool front over central and South Florida Tuesday. Those heading to theme parks, the beach or the golf course should keep an eye out for rapidly changing weather conditions.
According to Senior Meteorologist Mark Mancuso, “The greatest threats from the Florida storms will be flooding downpours, frequent lightning and strong wind gusts.”
