There is an enhanced risk of severe thunderstorms through Thursday across south-central Oklahoma and parts of northern Texas, with heavy rain likely to cause flooding and a chance for large hail, damaging winds up to 70 miles per hour and a few tornadoes, the National Weather Service reported.

The storms are mostly likely to happen in the afternoon, as a cold front bumps into air that could be in the 70s by then.

Severe thunderstorms with high winds and heavy rain could sweep through Upstate New York on Friday. We'll see about 1-3 inches of rainfall by Sunday evening, with some locally higher amounts possible.

Meanwhile, yet another blast of heavy rain will move into southeast Texas and southern Louisiana Friday and bring more rainfall rates that could exceed 2 inches per hour. The Trussville Municipal Complex flooded.

A squall line of showers and thunderstorms will arrive from Oklahoma during the first part of the day Wednesday with widespread showers and thunderstorms affecting all of the area. This is the show all about weather featuring many familiar voices, including the meteorologists at ABC 33/40.
