BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Severe weather is the big story today across ​parts of the country. Missouri, West Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi will be impacted by severe storms including tornadoes and damaging winds.

While the impact here will not be as strong, we will still need to be watchful as the line of storms gets closer to Alabama during the overnight and early Friday morning.

Marion, Lamar, Winston, Fayette, Walker and Pickens counties will be at highest risk for strong to severe storms during the early morning hours. The primary threat will be high winds, hail, and even a low-end tornado risk.

The window of opportunity for severe weather will be fairly short-lived due to the upper-level support quickly lifting to the north. The line of storms should quickly turn to harmless rain for most of us through out Friday. During the early afternoon, it's possible we could have enough instability to result in a flare up of a few storms. We can expect clearing skies during the afternoon and evening.

Saturday we will be between systems with a good deal of sunshine. Clouds will be on the increase late in the day and during the evening.

We will need to be watchful of the weather again late Sunday into Monday. A low pressure system will track northeast ward from Texas and an associated warm front is expected to lift north across Alabama. While models suggest severe weather along and north of the warm front, it still appears most of the active weather will remain in South Alabama.

However, if the warm front lifts farther to the north many parts of the state could be at risk for seeing damaging winds and even isolated tornadoes. At this point and based on the data we have, the highest risk for severe weather Sunday is south of I-85, but the risk could reach as far north as I-20 depending how much the atmosphere recovers.
