Slight chance of severe storms Friday night

A Flash Flood Watch will be in effect through Saturday night.

We should see strong to severe storms race through East Texas during the rest of the day today with the stronger storms expected once they arrive in our area. This is the storm system we are tracking for the Tennessee Valley for Saturday. Severe storms are possible in these areas as well with hail and wind being the main threats but an isolated tornado is also possible. Be sure to download the WXOW Weather App for weather updates when you're on the go! Right now, emergency officials continue to assess the damage from these storms, and in some parts of the state, particularly South Louisiana, this storm has not completely passed. This forecast is for a worst case scenario. REMEMBER: This is a developing system and these totals could easily change. Storms will hit the coast first and then move inland.

The veering profile may cause some cells in the storm line to rotate as well, increasing the damaging wind threat and creating the possibility of a few brief "spin-up" tornadoes even within the line. In all, about 1.5 to 3 inches of rain will fall, with a few spots getting up to 4 inches. The best chances for severe weather tonight lie in our NE counties.

Damaging wind can do damage similar to that of tornadoes.

Stay weather aware and be ready to move to your severe weather safe spot if risky weather threatens.

A line of thunderstorms will move in to western Southwest Georgia Sunday morning, continuing to move east throughout the morning into the afternoon.
