We've got some rain and some strong storms in the forecast for Thursday, and the rainy weather lasts through Mother's Day Weekend. Another round could form late on Friday afternoon in MS and move in across Alabama during the overnight hours.

The storms are expected to hit the region between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. bringing with them a chance for damaging straight-line wind. Severe weather will move through the Plains until at least Thursday.

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 front will run out of gas and stall out around here late Thursday night. It won't rain all day, but occasional showers are likely along with a possible thunderstorm. Those rain chances should remain rather high for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: The stalled front will keep the weather unsettled over the weekend. The rain will start to taper off Saturday night into Sunday. Highs will warm slightly to the upper 70s.

Weather risks on Thursday should slide a little south and east, with numerous thunderstorms developing from Louisiana to Tennessee.
