JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — There is a risk of large hail and wind damage as thunderstorms threaten Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia this weekend.

The national Storm Prediction Center has placed a large part of Mississippi at the highest risk of severe storms on Saturday. Forecasters say that area includes more than 1.3 million people and the cities of Jackson, Tupelo and Vicksburg.

Forecasters say Louisiana, Alabama and Georgia could also see storms Saturday and Sunday.

The National Weather Service says the stormy weather could bring hail and damaging winds to Georgia Saturday and Saturday night.  Forecasters say this could continue into Sunday before the storm front moves out of the state.
