The National Weather Service issued a rare 5/5 risk of severe weather in the Deep South. This was the first high-risk issued since May 20, 2019. The last high risk in March was issued in 2012.

This is also the third high-risk 5/5 zone issued in the month of March for parts of the Mid-South. The first was on Mar. 1, 2007, and the second was March 2, 2012.

The last time anyone in the Midsouth was under a 5/5 risk zone was April 28, 2014.

All of this was due to a cold front that made its way through Texas.
