The National Weather Service has recorded 124 preliminary reports of tornadoes so far this month. Monday’s twisters may be the farthest northwest tornadoes ever observed during January. Warm, moist air over southern and central U.S. during the dead of winter is fueling these violent storms. The next severe weather event is less than a day away. Warm, humid air mass will spread across the Deep South, fueled again by much warmer-than-normal temperatures. A few locations in Mississippi could set records in the mid-to-upper 70s.
