POSSIBLE TORNADO TAKES OFF TEXAS CITY, DESTROY AN OLD BUILDING
A strengthening system will peak later this afternoon and tonight, producing powerful thunderstorms containing large hail, damaging winds, heavy rain and multiple tornadoes.
Some of these tornadoes can be violent and long-lasting.
The target of the strongest storms will spread across parts of Mississippi, Alabama and southern Tennessee.
Please plan ahead in these areas so you have a plan in place if an alert or warning is triggered, and have a way to receive these alerts, especially at night.

It will be a weaker storm, but strong winds, heavy rain, and severe weather are possible.
Scattered showers and mountain snow will carry over to areas throughout the Southwest.
There are also wind advisories for parts of California and Arizona.
