Heavy winds and rain enter the mountains today

Rain amounts will run between the half inch to 1.25-inch range.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has reported three storm-related deaths in Alabama, bringing to seven the number of people confirmed killed following severe storms across the US Gulf coast and south-east.

The main threats hitting central and southern parts of the US are damaging winds, large hail, snow, flooding and a few tornadoes in Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Missouri.

A flash flood watch remains in effect for Hempstead, Howard, Little River, Nevada and Sevier counties in Southwest Arkansas. Parts of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Illinois and IN were under flash flood watches on Friday IN anticipation of the drenching rains. If any area looks more likely to have tornadoes coming, it is possibly that area may be changed to the more severe level of moderate risk, which is the second highest level.

Here's how the different regions could be affected. Even without tornadoes, these kinds of wind can cause considerable damage, so be sure to treat severe thunderstorm warnings as if they were a tornado warning tomorrow.

NOAA's Storm Prediction Center has much of Alabama in an enhanced risk for severe weather today.

A risky ice storm will form over the Great Lakes region, and widespread power outages are possible.

The National Weather Service said wind gusts could top 80 miles per hour - the speed of a Category 1 hurricane.

Parts of the Middle Mississippi Valley, the Great Lakes and Northern Maine may experience a mix of freezing rain, sleet and heavy snow.
