Forecasters say strong storms that could spin off tornadoes are possible this weekend in parts of the South.
The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, says parts of Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas could see severe thunderstorms on Saturday, including Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Tulsa, Oklahoma. On Sunday, the threat shifts to the east, where Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi and Alabama are at risk for bad weather.
Forecasters say damaging winds are the biggest risk but tornadoes can’t be ruled out.
Forecasters say tornadoes do occasionally strike in December, even though spring is usually the prime time for severe weather. Last year, five people died when tornadoes struck Mississippi two days before Christmas.
