Strong winds, isolated tornado possible across Gulf Coast, Midwest, according to NWS

Powerful wind gusts and possible tornadoes pose a “marginal risk” in southeastern states and the Midwest, the National Weather Service said Wednesday, and thunderstorms were expected to buffet parts of Louisiana.

The storm activity comes amid a muted holiday season, with fewer than usual Americans on the road ahead of Thanksgiving due to the coronavirus pandemic. Still, millions will venture out to visit family and friends, according to estimates.


Some of the cities that could see foul weather include Indianapolis, New Orleans, Cincinnati and Louisville.

The NWS also issued a severe thunderstorm warning for Jefferson Parish in Lousiana late Wednesday afternoon, warning of winds of more than 60 mph. Authorities warned that it was possible "a quick spin up" could occur.

"Stay weather aware and be ready to act," the NWS tweeted.

A swath of the country between southeastern Louisiana and Ohio also could see thunderstorms, with the worst of those expected in Alabama, northeastern Georgia and areas around the state line between North Carolina and Tennessee.


Forecasters said the storm system will move to the Gulf and East coasts Thursday before more thunderstorms blow across the South and a large part of Texas. The worst is focused on coastal Texas, Louisiana and southwestern Mississippi.

On the other side of the country, parts of Southern California are under elevated and critical risk of wildfires Thursday, with strong winds and low humidity, according to the NWS.
