A deadly storm system that's killed a dozen people in the Midwest appears to be dying down.
The National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center has downgraded its severe weather outlook to "slight" for the areas of the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic.
The Center says there's a five-percent probability of tornadoes for this morning.
At least 12 people were killed in a wave of tornadoes that pummelled the nation's midsection before heading to the East Coast.
Six of the fatalities happened in Illinois, three in Missouri and three others in Tennessee.
The line of storms moved into the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast last night, bringing heavy rain and some thunderstorms.
Meanwhile, another massive storm system is crossing the California coast, bringing heavy snow to the Sierras.
Forecasts indicate that storm system will march across the U.S. and set up shop in the tornado-damaged areas of the Midwest by tomorrow.
