Christmas tornadoes possible along Gulf Coast
The National Weather Service says people should prepare their yards for high winds Monday, securing lawn furniture or anything that might be blown into a home or car.
Weather service meteorologist Bob Wagner says the weather is coming from a storm front moving from the West Coast hitting a cold front.
The weather service in Jackson, Miss., says it is unclear how far north and west the threat will spread.
A squall line is expected to cross Alabama, Georgia, and the Florida Panhandle during the night with high winds and at least a few tornadoes possible into Christmas Day. The Carolinas also may be hit.
