Following yesterday's Central Plains severe weather outbreak, Mid-Southerners are a little uneasy about the threat here as the same storm system makes it's way through the region tonight. Fortunately for us, the impressive dynamics that spawned nearly 100 tornado reports (at last count, that number will likely fall a little as reports are verified) on Saturday are much weaker and will be well-removed from this portion of the country as the system moves east. However, a potent cold front will still push a line of storms through the region during the overnight hours.
