ATLANTA (AP) — Parts of the Deep South are under the threat of severe thunderstorms as a weather system moves into the region.
The national Storm Prediction Center has placed most of Alabama — along with parts of eastern Mississippi and west Georgia — in a zone that will be at marginal risk of severe storms Monday.
A line of thunderstorms was already moving through central and eastern Louisiana and western Mississippi before dawn Monday. It was heading toward Alabama.
The National Weather Service in Birmingham said a brief tornado, quarter-sized hail and isolated damaging wind gusts would be possible in central Alabama from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday.
