Strong to severe storms set up from Gulf to Great Lakes

Strong to severe storms set up from Gulf to Great Lakes

According to a National Weather Service hazardous weather outlook, the storm will pass through mainly "east of Interstate 85 and south of Interstate 20 this afternoon". Now we are looking at an afternoon/early evening time period where strong to severe storms could move through East Texas.

An area of weakening rain and storms continued to push through Alabama on Thursday morning following a burst of severe storms overnight.

Enjoy the 70s while we have them for one more day - temps won't even touch the upper 60s until early next week. By Saturday afternoon the center of the storm will be moving over the panhandle and looks to bring snow in that part of the state. The chance of precipitation is 80 percent.

Friday's risk includes hail, damaging winds and tornadoes. Severe weather may persist in southeast Oklahoma through Wednesday.

"Primary severe threats are very large hail and damaging wind gusts". NWS meteorologists are touring the U.P.to detail signs of approaching severe weather, how to relay that back to the station and explain safety precautions when capturing the moment.

Friday, the high will be near 67 with mostly cloudy skies, the weather service said. Currently, a slight risk for severe weather is in effect for west Alabama.

Winds will be powerful out of the north at around 20 to 25 miles per hour.

Rain and some storm chances will continue into Saturday night. It is possible that another storm targets the region with more severe weather to start the weekend.

Locally heavy rain may also cause some flooding issues across the eastern half of the forecast area.
