Another blast of severe storms aims for places still recovering from tornadoes

The entire viewing is under at least a slight risk of severe weather, but areas south of Richmond are under an enhanced risk for severe storms.

The greatest threat for severe storms this afternoon/evening should be from central TX to southern OK, and from southern KS to the northern TX Panhandle. These storms will likely be severe, capable of producing strong straight line winds, flash flooding, hail, and a few tornadoes.

The system will bring severe storms with very large hail, damaging winds and a few tornadoes late Wednesday from Texas all the way north to Wisconsin.

Thursday's system looks a lot like what happened over the weekend: 10 total tornadoes in Alabama and at least 13 in MS (all EF-2 and lower in strength). This front will trigger storms in the afternoon and evening.

Large hail and damaging winds are possible across the state on Wednesday, forecasters say. "Storms would move off towards the northeast or east-northeast at around 35 miles per hour".

The National Weather Service in Austin/San Antonio tweeted a forecast model showing the brunt of the storms hitting Austin around 1 a.m. - noting the actual time and intensity of the storm's arrival may change. Some areas could see 2 to 4 inches of rain, and even more locally.

(ABC News) The threat for severe weather moves into the Carolinas, Georgia and Florida on Friday.

As the storm turns northward Thursday night, additional moisture will be pulled along with it. Wake up temperatures on Friday morning are expected to be warm and humid although most of the morning hours should be dry.
