Threat for severe storms expected to linger into Saturday
Severe storms could produce tornadoes, damaging winds and large hail through Saturday in parts of the southern and eastern US.
A strong low-pressure system continues its trek eastward spawning showers and thunderstorms across a large section of the eastern third of the nation.
On Saturday, strong to severe storms will be possible in the Northeast and portions of the Southeast.
Damaging wind gusts and hail are likely with the strongest storms but a tornado or two cannot be ruled out.
