TALLAHASSEE (WTXL) -- Temperatures for most of the deep South and Southeast will be way above average for this time of the year. The warmer air could lead to severe weather outbreaks across much of the Central and Eastern US.

The severe weather chances start on Wednesday with severe storms possible in the central and southern Plains. However the threat of these severe storms may extend as far east as the mid-Mississippi Valley. If these storms get strong there is the chance for supercells with possible tornadoes. 

By Thursday the strength and threat of these storms is expected to grow. As the system continues to push towards the East, more widespread severe thunderstorms are possible from the central/southern Plains to the Mississippi Valley, and now reaching the southern Great Lakes. Along with the storms there is once again the chance for tornadoes.

By Friday the severe threat moves towards Mid-Atlantic into the Southeast. There will be more scattered severe storms possible, but now with damaging winds and hail.
