Widespread severe storms are not expected, but some areas could see hail and strong winds this afternoon and evening. An isolated storm can't be ruled out this afternoon mainly to the southeast along I-44.

A few showers are possible Friday into Friday evening, but certainly not a washout.

The National Weather Service in Huntsville is anticipating storms to develop in MS and western Tennessee and push into north Alabama by mid- to late afternoon or evening. We will drop to the 70s overnight with a mostly cloudy sky.

Here in the Lehigh Valley, the weather service says it will be cool today with temperatures generally in the low 70s.

When questioned, the kids said their grandmother told them there was no room in the vehicle for them and put them in the kennels. A woman has been arrested after a video shared online showed two children getting out of pet kennels inside the trunk of an SUV.

Rain and storms are moving in just to the north and south of Hampton Roads. With a wave of low pressure along a front to our south, shower and storm chances increase after 4 p.m. or so. High near 90. At night, partly cloudy with a 30 percent chance of rain.
