ATLANTA (AP) — Forecasters say a storm system will bring snow to some parts of the South and potentially severe thunderstorms to others.

The National Weather Service says the storms expected Thursday and Friday along the central Gulf Coast could include brief tornadoes. Snow and ice will be the main threats in the Appalachian Mountains.

A winter storm warning that goes into effect Thursday night and continues into Friday covered much of the north Georgia mountains. Residents there are expecting up to 4 inches of snow and some ice that could make travel treacherous.

Winter storm warnings also covered parts of Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia.
