Warnings of enhanced risk for severe thunderstorms and possible tornadoes were issued on Saturday by the National Weather Service for parts of Texas, southern Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and western Alabama, Reuters reports.

What to watch: Damaging winds and large hail are expected from the storms, which are likely to continue into the evening and move east by Sunday morning, where they will stretch from the Ohio Valley and into the southeast. These storms follow a paralyzing blizzard that slammed 6 states in the Plains and Midwest with 2 feet of snow on Thursday, closing many major interstates.
