>> over the next week or so, we're getting into this pattern, where every couple of days we're going to see a tornado threat. on tuesday, more of the ingredients are coming together for a tornado risk right in the heart of tornado alley. we'll pump up the humidity and bring in some jet stream energy and the potential for very large if not violent tornadoes. could be the most serious threat this season. >> more from rob on "good morning america." overseas now, where the u.s. is adding more military might in the battle against isis. president obama is ordering 250 additional military personnel to syria to help local forces there. most of those being deployed are members of the army special forces. >> they're not going to be leading the fight on the ground, but they will be essential in providing the training and assisting local forces they continue to drive isil back. as we remain relentless on the military front we're not going to give up on the dip lo masy front to end the syrian war.
