Locally severe thunderstorms will affect areas over the Plains, Upper Midwest and South into Thursday evening.
While severe weather will not be as widespread as recent days, the storms have the potential to bring frequent lightning strikes, damaging wind gusts, hail and flash flooding.
The strongest storms in Iowa, eastern Kansas, southern Minnesota, northwestern Missouri and southeastern Nebraska can produce a short-lived tornado.
Additional severe thunderstorms will continue to develop through the afternoon hours from the Dakotas to western Texas.
The next set of showers and thunderstorms will come this weekend for areas from the Midwest to parts of the southern mid-Atlantic and the South.
