One storm on Sunday was responsible for thunderstorms that dropped large, damaging hail in Texas and Oklahoma and a couple of tornadoes.

Damaging straight line winds and hail are the main threats.

The severe weather window will be from about 4 p.m. until about 10 p.m.

Each day focuses on a different topic, and today's is severe thunderstorms.

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible Monday, especially over Southwest Arkansas, North Louisiana, and Deep East Texas, ahead of a cold front that will slowly push southeast into the region.

The prime time for storms to develop will be this afternoon, according to the weather service in Huntsville.

Storms are expected to continue on and off overnight with rain for Monday morning.

The weather service said a smaller risk of hail and isolated wind damage extends as far south and east as Montgomery and Auburn.

Beyond this, fairly nice and stable weather is expected at least through Saturday.

It may seem like a bit much to go to shelter for a severe thunderstorm, since they happen more often.

Severe storms rolled through Norman, Oklahoma, early on Sunday, March 26. At this point, it looks like that system will bring some stronger elements. Forecasters say part of Middle Tennessee, west of I-65 and including Montgomery and Dickson counties, is under an enhanced risk level for severe weather.
