Severe weather targets Northeast and Plains this week

Severe thunderstorms and tornadoes pummeled the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest on Memorial Day Monday and into the early hours of  the morning.

Tuesday

While the threat for severe storms is very likely on Tuesday, chances for tornadoes are much lower. Large hail and strong winds with an isolated tornado chance stretches from Michigan to Texas. 

With the same areas getting rain day after day, flash flooding is a concern.

Up to five inches of rain could fall by mid-week from Missouri to the Texas Panhandle.
