Happy Flag Day! Strong thunderstorms here with a MAJOR severe weather threat in the deep south!

While there is a MAJOR severe weather threat in the deep south today, there will also be strong to potentially severe thunderstorms in the northeast with heavy downpours, hail, and strong gusty winds. It will be radar-watching time this afternoon, and not everyone will get a strong thunderstorm (lower chances east). I have included images of the future radar for 3 PM and 7 PM and also the maximum projected hail size to show the general idea/potential.
