OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma and other Great Plains states are bracing for what one forecaster says could be "a full gamut" of severe weather. The National Weather Service says there's a risk of severe thunderstorms today, including possible tornadoes and large hail, in parts of western Kansas, western Colorado, and the Oklahoma and Texas panhandles. Other areas could be in for snow. Forecasters say up to 5 inches of snow could fall in the Nebraska Panhandle, and parts of South Dakota could receive as much as a foot.

MIAMI (AP) — The National Hurricane Center says Tropical Storm Ana (AH'-nah) could stir up some dangerous surf along the coast of the Carolinas this weekend. It could also bring some drenching rains. The unusually early tropical storm is now centered about 105 miles south of Wilmington, North Carolina, with top sustained winds of 60 mph. A tropical storm warning is in effect from South Santee River in South Carolina to Cape Lookout, North Carolina.

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Several hundred Republican activists are in Greenville, South Carolina, to hear from almost a dozen declared and potential presidential candidates.

Scott Walker, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, former executive Carly Fiorina and Donald Trump.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Mothers from around the country are gathering in Washington for a rally with the theme "Stop Killing Our Children." They are marching to the Justice Department to demand justice and racial equality in the names of their slain children. One of the organizers is a Milwaukee woman whose son was fatally shot by police just over a year ago.

MOSCOW (AP) — About 300,000 people have walked through central Moscow holding portraits of relatives who fought in World War II. As the head of the vast column reached Red Square, the marchers were joined by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who held a photograph of his late father in his naval uniform. The march of the so-called Immortal Regiment was part of today's commemorations of the 70th anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany. Earlier, more than 16,000 troops took part in a military parade on Red Square.
