Severe storms stick around in the South

The nation has seen three days in a row with multiple severe weather alerts, and Saturday looks to make it four as parts of Texas and the South are once again painted in the severe weather risk zone. For Austin and San Antonio, it's déjà vu as those cities were under threat on Friday as well. Large hail will be the greatest concern from these severe thunderstorms, but damaging wind gusts of 60 mph and a few isolated tornadoes can't be ruled out.  Heavy rains could lead to flash flooding across south Texas and the Gulf Coast Saturday.
