New severe weather threat takes aim at central and eastern US

There is also a flash flood watch for part of this region from Arkansas to Tennessee. Locally 2 to 3 inches of rain will be possible in slow-moving thunderstorms, especially across parts of Tennessee.

The severe threat will push towards the East Coast on Sunday. The severe risk region is rather large, stretching from northern Georgia to Delaware. The most intense storms will likely form in eastern North Carolina up through the Delmarva Peninsula.

The main threats will be damaging winds, large hail and possibly brief tornadoes.
