Coast-to-coast storm to spawn severe weather in Southeast

Asia's Tech News Daily

October has been nearly record-setting in terms of tornado activity across the United States, and more severe weather is forecast on Thursday for areas from South Florida to the Carolinas.

A potent storm that started out this week on the West Coast as a bomb cyclone has moved eastward across the U.S., leaving a trail of storm damage in its wake. The storm will finally set its sights on the eastern half of the country as the associated cold front will sweep across Florida and the Southeast coast on Thursday, heightening the threat of severe weather.

States such as Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina will be at the greatest risk for severe storms to kick up during the day and into the overnight hours as the front swings eastward, AccuWeather meteorologists say.

“As warm and moist air surges northward in the Southeast, a line of severe thunderstorms will erupt on Thursday and lead into Thursday night. Cities such as Wilmington, North Carolina; Charleston, South Carolina; and Jacksonville, Tampa and Orlando, Florida; will all be at risk for dangerous storms,” said AccuWeather Meteorologist Ryan Adamson.

Winds in the strongest storms across Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas can gust up to an AccuWeather Local StormMax™ of 80 mph, which could result in damage.


“While damaging winds and flash flooding will be the main hazards, enough spin will be present in the atmosphere for isolated tornadoes to also be a concern,” Adamson said.

With the month coming to a close, there remains a decent chance that the record for most confirmed tornadoes across the U.S. during October will be broken. The number of October 2021 preliminary reports currently stands at 129, directly challenging the previous record set in October 2018 of 123 confirmed tornadoes. However, these reports will still need to be confirmed and are subject to revision until that occurs.

This map indicates the threat level for severe weather for Oct. 28. as outlined by the Storm Prediction Center.

The National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center (SPC) says a population of nearly 16 million residents lives in a slight risk area for severe thunderstorms on Thursday.

There have been 13 deaths to date this year across the United States as a result of tornadoes, according to the SPC. Meteorologists say people living in areas at risk for severe storms should stay vigilant and always have a plan in place.

Unsettled weather on Thursday will not be limited to the states along the Southeast coast. Thunderstorms will also kick up across northeastern Arkansas, southeastern Missouri, Tennessee, northern Mississippi and Alabama. Risks associated with these storms mainly include small hail, and they are not expected to become severe.

Farther north, widespread rain and showers will encompass portions of the Ohio Valley and mid-Atlantic region before shifting into areas of the Northeast on Friday.

Directly behind this storm, there will continue to be an uptick in winds across Kansas, Oklahoma and northern Texas. Strong winds from the northwest can reach ranges of 40-60 mph through Thursday with an AccuWeather Local StormMax™ of 70 mph possible blowing across South Central states.

Winds were already gusting from 40-60 mph across the Oklahoma and Texas panhandles Wednesday night. Locations such as Guymon, Oklahoma, even reported a gust of 68 mph.

Wind advisories were issued by the National Weather Service for Thursday across a broad coverage area from Oklahoma and Texas to northwestern Georgia. Additionally, high wind warnings were put in place for much of the day on Thursday across the panhandles of Oklahoma and Texas.

This strong wind event will increase the risk for localized power outages as well as challenging travel conditions. Forecasters warn that crosswinds upwards of 40 mph can cause difficulty to motorists, particularly high-profile vehicles.

After this round of severe weather subsides, a few showers are in the forecast for Friday across northern Florida. Most of the Southeast is forecast to have dry and pleasant weather this weekend.
