A weak disturbance is moving across the state Saturday, which means low clouds will linger with light rain showers along the Front Range and snow showers in the higher elevations. No injuries were reported, and news footage showed shattered windows and rooftop debris.

And Sunday, an enhanced risk (level 3 out of 5) stretches from Atlanta to Cleveland.

In case you wondering about how much rain fell on Friday, the National Weather Service is reporting that.55 inches of precipitation fell through midnight. They were in the back seat with their parents in the front, said Angelina County Sheriff's Department Capt. Alton Lenderman.

Additional details were not immediately available. Wind gusts around 50-60 miles per hour will be possible among the strongest storms that roll through.

The Storm Prediction Center says trees and power lines are down in Brewton near the Florida line, and some power is out.

Two people were hospitalized for injuries not thought to be life-threatening, while others were treated at the scene for minor injuries, Yezak said.

SATURDAY AFTERNOON: A relative lull may take hold of our area even though there is still the chance of a few showers and storms. This storm is likely to generate blizzard conditions across western Nebraska with travel not recommended on I-80 to the west, or I-29 north into South Dakota. The system shifts to the Ohio Valley and the Southeast on Sunday.

A tornado watch is in effect for East Texas through 7 p.m. Saturday.
