RESIDENTS in the south have been placed under a severe storm threat as tornados and hail the size of 50 cent coins are forecast for Tuesday.
The wintery mix will continue for a third week as large portions of the southern region may be battered with damaging winds, large hail, heavy rainfall and possible tornadoes.
Heavy downpours are expected to start Tuesday in Mississippi, western Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina residents.
Damaging wind gusts will also be a big concern for those in the affected areas.
After Tuesday, a cold front will advance eastward and batter through southeastern states on Wednesday.
The cold front will thrash parts of Tennessee, the southern Appalachians, North Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia.

Damaging winds, severe thunderstorms and a few tornadoes will be the main threat to residents from the Tennessee Valley to the deep south on Wednesday.
Further south, areas in Wisconsin and Minneapolis could see rain showers changing to snowflakes by Wednesday.
Temperatures in the area are expected to plummet, bringing hail and slippery travel conditions.
"An area of disruptive wind is expected Tuesday across the northern and central Rocky Front where wind gusts in excess of 60 mph can occur, particularly across the prone areas of southeast Wyoming and north-central Colorado," AccuWeather Meteorologist Joseph Bauer said.
