A strong cold front will sweep into the state after 10 p.m. Friday, bringing with it a line of showers and thunderstorms.

There is a slight chance for some severe thunderstorms across portions of North Texas Friday afternoon and evening.

On Tuesday, severe weather was possible in the region.

As soon as this main line of storms passes your area the threat for strong to severe weather will end for you.

For the second time this week, we have another chance for strong to severe thunderstorms moving into central MS by late Friday into the wee hours of Saturday. Damaging wind will likely be the main threat along with the possibility for some large hail.

French unions kick off huge rail strike in test for Macron
Though the aviation strike is not linked to Macron's reforms directly, it certainly made the impact of the unions' strike bigger. Workers now enjoy generous contract and benefits, but the French government is looking to reform contracts for new workers.

It was a mild and sunny Thursday afternoon for central and south Alabama, with just a few thin and wispy cirrus clouds this afternoon. However, not all of us will be rain-free.

This front is also going to be in a blast of chilly air, so much cooler is going to follow the front. Highs Friday will climb into the upper 70s to low 80a thanks to a breezy south wind. Tonight will be mostly fair and not as cold as last night; most places will see a low in the 40s early tomorrow morning. Afternoon highs on Saturday will only be in the 50s. Frost will be possible in spots, especially along and north of I-30.

Temperatures are upside down on Saturday - we'll begin the day in the mid to upper 60s, but as the front swings through, temperatures will drop into the 50s during the afternoon.

Temperatures will tumble Saturday night into Sunday morning.
