Severe weather is expected Saturday, March 30 as a cold front slices through the southern U.S. The areas at greatest risk include portions of Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, and Kentucky where the Storm Prediction Center has highlights a slight risk of severe weather. A slight risk is on the lower end of severe threat scale, but still means tornadoes, damaging winds, and large hail are possible in the area.

The storms will be triggered by a strong cold front as it moves east.
