A large low-pressure system in the Midwest continues to generate spotty showers and thunderstorms from the Northern Plains to the Mid-Atlantic on Friday.
The system keeps cloudy wet conditions to the north, but further south severe weather is likely.
The Storm Prediction Center has issued a moderate risk of severe weather today for portions of the Lower Mississippi Valley, as well as a slight risk for a large area that includes Texas, Oklahoma and Georgia.
Severe storms will be capable of producing high winds, large hail and tornadoes.
Heavy rain and localized flooding is also possible.
Elsewhere in the eastern U.S., above-average temperatures continue.
High temperatures will be 20-25 degrees above average in the eastern Great Lakes region on Friday and Saturday.
And in the Southwest, dry conditions combined with breezy winds and low humidity will again support critical weather conditions.
Conditions are expected to improve on Sunday and Monday.
