The threat for severe weather will increase as we get into the weekend across the south and southeast Friday into Saturday. There is a marginal risk for severe weather on Friday, which means isolated severe storms will be possible that could produce damaging winds, hail at least 1" in diameter, and even tornadoes. The greatest likelihood for severe storms will be lower Mississippi Valley Friday afternoon into portions of the southern Plains by late Friday night. Severe weather chances will continue overnight Friday into Saturday with an Enhanced Risk in the forecast.  The focus will be across the Ozark Plateau through the lower Ohio Valley, with additional severe storms possible across the lower Mississippi into Tennessee Valleys. According to the Storm Prediction Center, considerable wind damage may accompany these storms along with the risk for tornadoes, some of which could be strong. Stay with WeatherNation the next several days as we continue to cover this top weather story.  And make sure you are prepared for severe weather and even tornadoes if you are in the risk area.
