  • Severe weather expected to sweep through Georgia and Alabama
  • There's a chance for damaging winds and tornadoes

(CNN)Southeastern states are likely to see another round of severe thunderstorms, damaging winds and possible tornadoes Wednesday, forecasters said.

Storms will erupt in Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee and several Southern states. The worst weather could stretch from Alabama to South Carolina.
A system of storms will affect Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina before moving into the Ohio and Tennessee valleys, according to the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center.
    Strong winds and baseball-size hail are expected in parts of Alabama.
    In most of Georgia, forecasters say damaging winds will begin in the morning and extend into the afternoon. There's also a chance for isolated tornadoes and hail, National Weather Service meteorologist Matthew Sena told CNN.
    The severe weather could last for a longer period of time than Monday's storms and mainly impact cities such as Atlanta and Augusta, Georgia, before it moves north by the end of the day, Sena said.
    At least five people died as a severe storm system swept through several Southern states over the weekend and on Monday.
