ATLANTA (AP) - Parts of the Deep South are under the threat of severe thunderstorms as a weather system moves into the region.

The national Storm Prediction Center has placed most of Alabama - along with parts of eastern Mississippi and west Georgia - in a zone that will be at marginal risk of severe storms Monday.

A line of thunderstorms was already moving through central and eastern Louisiana and western Mississippi before dawn Monday. It was heading toward Alabama.

The National Weather Service in Birmingham said a brief tornado, quarter-sized hail and isolated damaging wind gusts would be possible in central Alabama from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday.

The weather service said isolated to scattered storms were also possible over Georgia Monday afternoon and evening with gusty winds being the main threat.
