Strong-to-severe storms likely today

More severe storms will also be possible on Thursday.

This is Severe Weather Awareness Week in Iowa. Heitkamp says that severe thunderstorms can be just as risky as tornadoes, perhaps more than some, it's just that the winds are straight, not in a vortex.

The greatest risk for storms today will be to the north and west of Alabama in parts of MS and Tennessee, where there is an enhanced risk.

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible Monday, especially over Southwest Arkansas, North Louisiana, and Deep East Texas, ahead of a cold front that will slowly push southeast into the region.


Storms are expected to continue on and off overnight with rain for Monday morning.

The strongest storms will be possible along and northwest of a line from Demopolis to Alabaster to Gadsden.

Part of North Texas was placed under a tornado watch late Sunday, but the severe weather stayed east of Wichita Falls.

But many people do not pay as much attention to a severe thunderstorm warning as a tornado warning, saying, "it's just a severe thunderstorm warning". Storms will reach peak intensity this afternoon. At this point, it looks like that system will bring some stronger elements. A tornado or two is not out of the question, the weather service said.
