Georgia Bound, Weather Advice Needed

The Mrs and I are on an extended vacation/visit the family trip. Problem is that I40 is a mess weather wise and 10/20 down south doesn't appear much better. Softball size hale, localized flooding and tornados. We're getting ready to enter Arizona and are looking for input from our fellow RVers as to the best possible route to take in order to avoid the most serious weather.

I've been considering south of I20, but severe weather alerts are all over the place in TX, LA and the rest of our planned route. Anybody have good news regarding wether out that way?

You could come to the Black Hills in SD, only a foot of snow and still snowing.

Seriously, I would wait a couple of days and just follow the front.

I am in Ms about half way between 20 & 40. We have no sever weather forecast for the entire week. I know Tx and La have been getting some storms but they have stalled before they crossed the Ms River so someone else will have to reply to that. I will tell you that I10 across La is rough so I would travel 20 or 40 if I had a choice.

Thanks for the advice.

I appreciate the good advice. I will try following the storm front east as much as possible. I realize I10 gets rough at times, but I was looking to keep as far south of the system as possible. We had planned taking 40 all the way, but the weather is the biggest unknown along that route. The Dallas area has been hard hit as well so I20 might prove to be dicey. Wish us luck. Being from the NW rain isn't the issue. Large hail stones, flash floods and tornados are another story altogether. Thanks again and wish us luck.

In the south, we just call that kind of weather summer! We don't really freak out until it snows 3/4 of an inch.
