HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Forecasters are warning of the possibility of severe weather in north Alabama, where there's a risk of damaging winds and tornadoes.

The National Weather Service says numerous severe storms are possible Thursday in the Tennessee Valley region and as far south as the northern Birmingham area.

Forecasters say winds up to 60 mph are possible along with isolated tornadoes and hail. They're raised the chances of severe weather in the latest forecasts.

The threat will extend to early Friday in central Alabama.

The state is on the southern end of a storm system that pummeled the central part of the country.

The weather service says storms shouldn't be dangerous in the parts of east Alabama that are still recovering from killer tornado outbreak that occurred earlier this month.
