DISCUSSION: In light of the currently developing low pressure system currently positioned across the South-Central United States, there are growing concerns for a more-than-likely severe threat to unfold across many parts of the southeastern United States over the next 12 to 24 hours. As discussed in the graphic attached above (courtesy of Meteorologist Sheldon Kusselson), there is a formidable threat for more widespread severe weather during the day on Saturday. This be primarily due to the aforementioned low pressure system gradually making its way eastward and bringing in a plethora of Gulf of Mexico moisture. Therefore, the combination of the warm, moist Gulf of Mexico air and the turning of the wind speed as well as direction with height will create a particularly conducive pre-convective environment.
