Despite it being December, the weekend is ending with severe thunderstorms threatening the lower Mississippi Valley. On Monday, the danger will shift to communities farther east in the South.
Violent thunderstorms will continue to erupt from eastern Arkansas, western Tennessee and northwestern Mississippi to eastern Texas (north of Houston) through tonight.
Memphis, Tenn., Monroe, La., and Greenwood, Miss., are among the communities at risk.
The strongest thunderstorms will be capable of unleashing damaging winds, hail and flooding downpours. A tornado or two touching down cannot be ruled out.
