Much of north Florida and the entire Georgia and SC coasts would be at an "enhanced" risk for severe storms Tuesday, which could include damaging winds, large hail and a few tornadoes, the National Storm Prediction Center.

A line of storms will move through early Tuesday morning.

"Once this goes on by us we may see a couple of sprinkles or light showers early in the day", said WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss.

The National Weather Service says thunderstorms will develop ahead of an approaching storm system. "So, an active pattern will continue".

The storms produced tornadoes that ripped through this Dollar General.

The Weather Channel released an updated prediction for the weather and tweeted Monday afternoon that the "TORCON" level for northern Alabama was up to 7. But it had no reports of injuries from the storms.

Late Monday night the National Weather Service warned residents of a tornado on Twitter.

The violent weather continued on Tuesday, as severe storms once again sparked tornado warnings across portions of Georgia and Central Florida.

The strongest storms associated with the front have the potential produce damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes, according to the briefing. The weather service says hail as large as 3 inches (7.5 centimeters) in diameter could fall, and there's a possibility of wind gusts to 70 miles per hour (115 kph). A test tornado watch will be issued followed by a test tornado warning shortly after for all counties within Iowa. It is likely at this point that after 3 pm, these threats will increase. Much cooler weather will move in behind the cold front Tuesday night, and highs will only be in the mid-50s on Wednesday.
