To all you holiday travelers making your routes across the Mid-South this Christmas, be careful!

The weather channels have issued a severe thunderstorm warning and tornado watch in major metropolitan areas across the Mid-South.

Here’s what WMC Action News 5 has to say about today’s weather:

WMC Action News 5 – Memphis, Tennessee

The major storms in Arkansas and East Memphis today, December 23, are expected to continue to move and with predicted tornadoes this evening.

So, if you’re stuck out there in the storms driving, make sure to keep your lights on, drive at low speed, and keep your eyes on the road. If the weather gets too bad, don’t be too bold to pull over to the side of the road and wade it out.

Also, make sure to track your plane departures and watch for delays.

You can track the storms here at WREG.
