A storm has slowly progressed across the country this week, triggering severe weather from the Four Corners states to the Mississippi Valley.

The Southeastern states are now facing the threat for potentially damaging thunderstorms to end the week.

Compared to recent days, the severe weather Friday will be less widespread and more isolated in nature.

β€œOn Friday, the severe thunderstorm threat will be more widely separated from the Tennessee Valley to the central Gulf Coast,” AccuWeather Lead Storm Warning Meteorologist Eddie Walker said.

Some of the stronger thunderstorms can extend to the Carolina coastline.

"Only a small number of storms are likely to produce damaging wind gusts and moderate hail with a minimal tornado risk,” Walker said.

Anyone who is caught outdoors when the thunderstorms strike should promptly seek shelter inside at the first sight of lightning or rumble of thunder. β–
