In addition to a widespread severe weather outbreak from Texas to parts of the eastern U.S., this storm will likely bring an outbreak of tornadoes across parts of the southern U.S. on Saturday. The severe weather outbreak already began Saturday morning in parts of the South with reports of large hail in Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi.A tornado watch was issued for extreme southwest Texas until 9 a.m. local time Saturday morning. A severe thunderstorm watch was issued for parts of western Texas through 9 a.m. Flood alerts are also being issued for parts of the southern U.S. due to torrential rainfall.Radar is showing quite a bit of storm activity developing Saturday morning from Texas to Alabama, with the most intense storms in western Texas and near the Arkansas-Louisiana-Texas region.Severe storms will develop later Saturday in eastern Texas, Louisiana and western Mississippi that will likely tap into strong wind shear and develop dangerous supercells in the afternoon hours. The High Resolution Rapid Refresh model is showing numerous discrete supercells developing during this time frame and the potential for strong tornadoes. The intense thunderstorms will move across this region beginning in the afternoon and last into the evening hours.There is a moderate risk for severe weather from Lufkin, Texas, to Jackson, Mississippi, including much of northern Louisiana. In the moderate risk region, dangerous, long-track tornadoes are possible. Additionally, destructive straight-line winds and very large hail are possible from eastern Texas to western Alabama.Intense thunderstorms will continue through the overnight hours in parts of this region. There is a possibility of ongoing severe weather early Sunday morning, with night-time tornadoes and destructive winds.On Sunday morning, storms will congeal into a line that will likely stretch from the Florida Panhandle to Ohio. The main threat will be straight-line, damaging winds. However, embedded tornadoes could develop in the line of thunderstorms.The line of storms will impact the Appalachian Mountains on Sunday evening as they begin to lose their severe potential. Nonetheless, numerous severe thunderstorms, with damaging winds, large hail and a couple of tornadoes, are possible as the storms move through the region.There is an enhanced risk for severe weather on Sunday from Georgia to Ohio, including Atlanta; Charlotte; and Charleston, West Virginia. Damaging winds, a few tornadoes and large hail are possible in the risk region.In addition to the severe weather threat, storms will bring torrential rainfall over parts of Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi. Rainfall over 4 inches is possible in that region, which makes flash flooding a concern with the ongoing storms this weekend.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Property shares nosedive

first_imgShare values across the property sector have dropped in recent days amid growing signs that the residential property market is slowing, especially in previously buoyant London and the South East.Countrywide, the country’s largest estate agent, saw its shares drop by 2.9 per cent late last week, while Rightmove and Zoopla’s share prices fell by 3.7 per cent and 2.5 per cent respectively.House builders also failed to escape unscathed from a raft of recent property reports and house price indices that suggest that it is fast becoming a buyer’s market as the market cools.Developers listed on the FTSE 100, such as Taylor Wimpey, Persimmon and Barratt, all saw their share prices depreciate by more than 4 per cent at the end of last week, with further falls anticipated by some market analysts.Stockbroker Jefferies, for instance, last week downgraded the entire residential property sector, projecting that London and the South East may see property price falls in the months ahead.A research note from Anthony Codling, Jefferies’ property analyst, which was made public last week, suggested “share price weakness in the UK residential sector” in the first quarter, on the back of “negative newsflow on UK mortgage approvals, UK housing transactions, weak houseprice data and lower UK GDP growth.”“The weakness will continue into the second quarter because of uncertainty caused by the UK national election in May,” he added.“We also believe that house price growth will slow significantly during the first half and may even decline in some parts of London and the South East, while there is uncertainty around the outcome of the election and the prospect of a new mansion tax should power change hands.”Recent property price data released by the Land Registry, Halifax and Nationwide all reveal that home prices increased fairly strongly last year, but they are slowing, reflected by a fall in demand for mortgages, which fell sharply in the fourth quarter of last year, according to the Bank of England.residential property market slowing share values January 21, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?
