No one ever said forecasting the weather was easy. Starting Sunday it gets even harder than normal for us forecasting the weather in the eastern half of the country. The problem is a cut-off low that develops Sunday.
The ingredients are coming together again for a severe weather outbreak across the southeast. This doesn’t look anything a severe as last week but still has the potential to produce damaging wind gusts. So the tornado threat is smaller but the wind threat is higher this go around.
After seeing the devastation of the Rock Hill tornado first hand on Thursday and reporting on it. I started getting e-mails, Tweets, and Facebook messages from people in Fort Mill, SC and Ballantyne in North Carolina.
