Concerns for Overnight Severe Weather

While taking Bella out I noticed clouds at different heights moving at different speed and direction compared to wind at the ground.  Combine the wind shear with heat and humidity and factor in a strong incoming cold front and it raises the risk for severe thunderstorms, high winds, hail, and tornadoes significantly.

A massive superstorm raging in the upper midwest has a trailing cold front which will pass through the SE US later tonight.  The anvil shape is disconcerting.  

Incredible storm centered near the Great Lakes
also threatens East with Severe Weather.
