Dangerous storms to return to north-central US on Tuesday

A renewed risk of severe weather will threaten portions of the north-central United States early this week.

The thunderstorms have the potential to cause property, crop and tree damage in some communities. Storms could also slow travel for a time.

Areas most at risk for severe storms on Tuesday afternoon and evening include portions of South Dakota and Nebraska.

"Scattered severe storms will develop in the Black Hills and western Nebraska on Tuesday afternoon as a system kicks into the Plains," according to AccuWeather Storm Warning Meteorologist Joe Bauer.

Locally damaging wind gusts, large hail and torrential downpours are possible from any storm that forms.

"There will [also] be a threat for isolated tornadoes as storms initially develop," Bauer explained.

Travel could be slowed for a time as storms pass over interstates 29, 80 and 90.

Those spending time outdoors will want to monitor the skies for billowing and darkening clouds.

While the day can start out sunny, conditions can quickly turn volatile as storms begin to erupt in the afternoon.

As soon as you hear thunder, head indoors to avoid being struck by lightning.

Storms are expected to move along an east-southeast path into the overnight hours.

"Through the overnight, the focus will turn to more of a damaging wind and local flash flooding threat as storms [begin to] congeal into a line," Bauer stated.

Leftover storms from overnight could even reach portions of Iowa by Wednesday morning, although their intensity will likely have diminished.

The threat for severe weather could be reinvigorated across part of the Plains later on Wednesday afternoon.
