The National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center is forecasting a major severe weather outbreak for today and tonight across multiple Southern states. Per the NWS, “A tornado outbreak — including the threat of a few long-tracked, violent tornadoes — is expected today into early this evening over the Southeast, especially parts of Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee. Tornadoes, large to very large hail, and damaging winds to hurricane force also are possible over a broad area from the central Gulf Coast to the Ohio Valley and southern Appalachians.
”According to FreightWaves, “in addition to delaying ground transportation, the storms could delay air cargo, as well as the loading and unloading of cargo at ports.”
