Another round of severe weather is impacting a large area of the central U.S. Thursday evening.
People from northeastern Oklahoma to central Kentucky and southwestern Ohio will be in the path of these severe storms, according to AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Brian Lada.
The primary danger that will accompany the stoms include large hail, flash flooding and damaging winds, but the threat of an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. The most powerful storms could occur over the middle part of the Mississippi Valley to near the Oklahoma/Arkansas border, according to Lada.
Major metropolitan areas that could be impacted by the severe weather includes: St. Louis, Little Rock and Fayetteville, Arkansas; Lexington and Paducah Kentucky; Springfield and Cape Girardeau, Missouri; and Tulsa, Oklahoma.
