A very serious weather situation is unfolding across the South on this Christmas Day.
A potent upper level disturbance is swinging across Texas this morning. It will cause a powerful surface low to spin up over eastern Texas that will move northeast overnight. The low will pull in lots of warm, moist Gulf air that will become unstable. The low will provide lift, and strong winds rotating around it will result in wind shear values that are off the chart.
The result will be supercell thunderstorms that will develop from eastern Texas across Louisiana, Mississippi and southwestern Alabama later today. These storms will be capable of producing strong, long lived tornadoes, the kind of tornadoes that do lots of damage and can be killers.
Severe weather is possible as far north as Shreveport, Greenville MS, Nashville and Greensboro SC.
