BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Forecasters say more storms are likely in Alabama after a round of rough weather that included flooding and a tornado scare.

The National Weather Service says storms with heavy rains and gusty winds are possible from the Tennessee Valley to the Gulf Coast on Thursday.

Forecasters say the worst threat is during afternoon hours, with storms diminishing after nightfall.

Parts of the state endured a similar round of bad weather Wednesday afternoon.

Strong storms caused flooding in northwest Alabama, leaving cars submerged in parking lots in Russellville and some roads covered with water.

The weather service issued a tornado warning in northeast Alabama as the storms moved through Jackson County, but no damage is being reported. Forecasters say radar indicated a possible twister in the area.
