2 killed, dozens injured when bus from Huntsville crashes in Mississippi

Scattered Storms: more of them Thursday evening and again Friday

Scattered storms increase in coverage through early evening around North Alabama and Southern Tennessee, and a few storms could briefly turn severe with wind gusts over 60 miles per hour. Evening storms will not be quite as widespread as they were Wednesday; however, a more widespread area of rain and thunderstorms moves into the region overnight through Friday morning.

A few storms could be severe with gusty winds being the primary threat; the Storm Prediction Center is monitoring Middle Tennessee with a 20% chance of a Severe Thunderstorm Watch:

This is not a guaranteed, everybody-gets-soaked setup Thursday evening through Friday morning, but some communities will get more than 1” of rain in the scattered downpours. Another wave of storms develops Friday afternoon and evening; most of those may occur south and east of the Huntsville area where the early-day storms don’t have as much of an impact. One more wave of heavy storms moves in Saturday night, and then we’ll finally dry out some after that.
