As a snowstorm travels across the central Plains to the Midwest and into the Northeast, the potential for severe thunderstorms will exist on Sunday across parts of Texas and Louisiana.
Most of the storms are forecast to fire in an area bounded by the I-10 and I-20 corridors.
The greatest risks from the storms are urban flooding, large hail and damaging wind gusts. However, this setup may also spin up a few tornadoes. As a result, people living in or traveling through the aforementioned area will want to keep an eye out for rapidly changing weather conditions.
"The greatest risk for a few tornadoes is Sunday afternoon, and that is most likely in portions of northeastern Texas to near or just north of Houston," AccuWeather Enterprise Solutions Severe Weather Meteorologist Tyler Dewvall said.
The potent thunderstorms will first ignite Sunday afternoon, then will spread the rest of the day and evening tracking to the south and east.
The thunderstorms will target Houston, Texas, and Shreveport and Lake Charles, La.
On the northern fringe of the severe weather area near the Arkansas border, a change to colder conditions will lead to ice or a wintry mix on Sunday night.
During Sunday night into Monday, while the storms are likely to be less volatile east of the Mississippi River, there will be an ongoing risk for urban flooding and localized damaging wind gusts. This potential will exist from New Orleans to Montgomery, Ala., and Atlanta.
