The severe-weather risk is moderate - the second-highest classification from the Storm Prediction Center.
The primary threats will be strong wind gusts and large hail.
The warning comes after a severe weather system killed at least 21 people in the South earlier this year, many in mobile homes demolished by tornadoes in Georgia and Mississippi.
According to the NWS in Houston, in addition to the severe weather threat, there also is potential for heavy rainfall.
As we head into the late morning/early afternoon, we are looking for the storms to begin moving into the western sections of East Texas.
A strong storm system will bring the threat for severe storms and heavy rain late Sunday into early Monday for southeast Louisiana and southern Mississippi. Right now I'm most concerned about severe weather in areas south of I-20. "We don't expect this weather event to leave the state of Louisiana until sometime tomorrow midmorning".
As GOP schism grows, Trump attacks fellow Republicans
The group played a pivotal role in the failure last week of the House Republican plan to replace the Affordable Care Act. This is part of the reason many in the group were big Trump backers - they felt like he shared their "outsider" roots.

Another gorgeous day is on the way for Sunday before two chances of active weather return for next week, followed by a cool-down.
All storms look to be out of the area by Monday morning.
By noon Sunday, hail, risky winds and street flooding had been reported in some regions. If this occurs, hail, gusty winds and tornadoes are possible in this area.
Saturday will be dry and mild with mid 50s in the morning and upper 60s or lower 70s in the afternoon. The chance is pretty low and depends on other factors coming together, like warmer temperatures and breaks for sunshine. Rain totals between 1-3 inches will be common with some areas seeing more than 6 inches. There continues to be weak rotation within this storm.
We enjoyed a great weekend, but with our active weather pattern the nice weather only lasts a few days.
