Severe Threat

Severe Threat

While heavy rainfall will be the primary threat, a few severe thunderstorms are possible Thursday in the Lower Mississippi Valley.

A brief damaging wind gust and, perhaps, a rain-wrapped tornado embedded in the line of thunderstorms is possible as it marches only slowly eastward.

Record Streak

Record Streak
Interestingly, we have now broken a "good" tornado record.  The last tornado-related fatality in the U.S. was from Tropical Storm Debby on June 24 in Venus, Fla.
It's been 199 straight days without a single U.S. tornado death, which beats the old record streak from 1986 and 1987.

This is despite a 61-mile long tornado with up to EF3 damage on Christmas Day in southern Mississippi, not to mention over two dozen other tornadoes that touched down during that outbreak.
