Another very strong upper-level storm system will move through the central United States this weekend.

The front will return north Friday into Saturday. These storms will likely come in two rounds; the first round will move in during the morning hours, and if any sunshine breaks out, round two of thunderstorms could turn strong. Some pockets of hail will be possible, but that threat should be a little more limited.

Summer is just around the corner and with it comes severe weather. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible across northwest Middle Tennessee.

According to weather.com, while a second round of storms is expected to miss all of Alabama and most of MS on Friday, storms will return to the state on Saturday and Sunday. This line of storms will continue to weaken during the overnight as it tracks east. Instability is rather low with the exception of right along the line of storms.

We will have a risk for severe storms late Friday into early Saturday. But at this point it does appear that south central and east central Oklahoma will have the higher opportunity for flooding potential. The expected low will be around 49 with south winds of 6 to 9 miles per hour becoming west in the evening. Sunny skies will push temperatures into the mid 70s during the afternoon.

Of course, many claims of sexual harassment in the workplace are fabricated for whatever reason (though five cases is a lot). Then, she said, she complained to Ailes, who resigned from the network a year ago amid allegations of sexual harassment.

A few storms may fire up Tuesday evening in Oklahoma.

Rainfall could also get heavy creating street flooding and hydroplaning. The cold front will bring an end to any/all severe weather threats by mid-morning on Sunday (around 9a).

Most parts of Arkansas not under the moderate risk for severe storms are under an enhanced risk, which is one step down, Clarke said.
