Severe weather forecast in South will shift northeastward over the weekend

Severe weather is forecast to move from the South and into the Northeast over the weekend.

On Friday, scattered severe thunderstorms were projected to produce damaging hail and winds through the evening from north-central Texas to the middle and lower Rio Grande Valley. 

The National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center issued an enhance risk of severe thunderstorms for much of the Dallas-Fort Worth, San Antonio and Austin metro areas. 

On Saturday, rainfall chances increase along parts of the immediate Gulf Coast.


Multiple rounds of heavy rainfall are expected through Sunday morning in the eastern U.S. 

A slight risk of excessive rainfall was issued for the Florida Panhandle, southeastern Alabama and southern Georgia. 

Severe thunderstorms are possible along the Florida Panhandle, bringing damaging winds and a few tornadoes after a twister hit the Hosford area on Thursday. 

“It has been confirmed that a tornado has hit the Hosford area. All students at Hosford school are accounted for and safe. There is a large amount of debris and power lines down in the area.

However, conditions will improve, with most precipitation becoming lighter by Saturday morning for the Northeast and southern New England.
