Feb. 11, 2020
With heavy rain pounding the US Deep South and delaying local school openings, residents will see little respite as more rainfall and thunderstorms are expected to arrive this week.
According to a Tuesday report by the US National Weather Service (NWS) , “an upgrade to Moderate Risk of excessive rainfall has been issued for the Upper Tennessee Valley and Cumberland Plateau for Wednesday.”
In addition, a slight risk of severe weather was issued Tuesday by the Storm Prediction Center to the Lower Mississippi Valley.
According to the NWS, additional rainfall is expected across the Deep South starting Wednesday.
In addition, a low pressure center is expected to move across the eastern coast of Texas into western Tennessee, which will likely produce “thunderstorms capable of severe weather,” the NWS added.
