The storms will brewing Saturday night in Texas and move east, strengthening as they go into Arkansas and Louisiana.

The Storm Prediction Center issued a "moderate risk" for storms in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. Parts of Texas, Tennessee and Georgia are under an "enhanced risk" for severe storms.

The Storm Prediction Center is warning of "long-tracked tornadoes and potentially widespread damaging wind" on Sunday.
