...NO SEVERE THUNDERSTORM AREAS FORECAST...
Showers and possibly a few thunderstorms will affect parts of the
Southeast on Tuesday.
Very little change to the overall synoptic pattern is forecast
Tuesday, with broad/low-amplitude cyclonic flow aloft over all but
the western quarter of the country, as a polar vortex moves east
along the southern shores of Hudson Bay and a short-wave trough/low
lingers off the Pacific Northwest coast. At the surface, cold
continental air will continue to spread across much of the country,
as a cold front at the leading edge of the polar air moves slowly
southward across the Southeast.
...CENTRAL GULF COAST STATES AND VICINITY...
Showers and potential for local/isolated thunderstorms is evident
across the central Gulf Coast region Tuesday, in the vicinity of the
southward-moving cold front. Limited buoyancy is expected to hinder
convective intensity through the period.
