NASA released an animation of visible and infrared satellite data from NOAA's GOES-East satellite that shows the development and movement of the weather system that spawned tornadoes affecting seven central and southern U.S. states on April 27 – 28, 2014. NASA's Aqua satellite captured infrared data on the system that revealed powerful storms, high into the troposphere.
This storm system generated reports of tornadoes from Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi.
The NOAA / NWS Storm Prediction Center is forecasting a widespread severe weather outbreak Monday afternoon into Monday night across portions of the southern and eastern U.S. (local time). The greatest potential – where SPC has outlined a Moderate Risk – is across the lower Mississippi and Tennessee Valleys. Widespread severe storms – including strong tornadoes, damaging winds and very large hail are expected.
