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).

Less than a week after the area's last round of severe storms, South Texas may be under the gun again Wednesday night.

Tornadoes, damaging winds, hail and heavy rain will all be possible with these storms, according tot the National Weather Service.

Once that occurs, storms will start developing most likely west of Fort Worth in Palo Pinto or Parker County and move eastward.

A massive storm system killed eight people in the South over the weekend and caused damage from Texas to Mississippi.

"Very large hail in the 2- to 3-inch diameter range is possible with any sustained supercells that develop and is the greatest threat". Strong winds are also possible, along with the risk of a few tornadoes. Large hail and gusty winds are the main threats.

WHERE: The best chance for severe weather will be across the Hill Country.

The Storm Prediction Center has raised the risk for severe weather for Alabama on Thursday.

There is a MARGINAL risk of severe weather from Ruston down to Natchitoches Wednesday night through early Thursday morning.

The storms are expected to reach Alabama in the form of a squall line ahead of the actual cold front.

Cooler air will follow Thursday's storms, making it unusually cool on Friday with clouds and scattered showers expected to linger behind the front.
