We had another significant severe weather outbreak across the Southern U.S. yesterday and last night. The Storm Prediction Center had a Moderate Outlook (in red on the map above) from E. Texas to Georgia. They said:
"An outbreak of tornadoes and severe thunderstorms is expected today from parts of the lower Mississippi Valley across much of the the Southeast. In addition to tornadoes, many of the storms will have very large hail and wind damage."
Last (Easter) Sunday/Sunday night, 135 tornadoes were reported from Texas to South Carolina. There were at least 19 fatalities and nearly 100 injured by the twisters. On the map above you can see tornado reports (red dots) and wind damage reports (blue dots). Supercell thunderstorms spawned multiple tornadoes as they tracked east-northeast with tornadoes and severe storms continuing right through Sunday night. If I remember right, this was the biggest severe weather/tornado day since 2011. Here’s Southern U.S. radar:
