A stormy pattern is setting up in the middle of the country, and it's expected to remain there the entire week.

The threat of damaging thunderstorms and a few tornadoes will linger in the Plains all the way through Friday.


The main threats this week will be strong, damaging winds and large hail. A few tornadoes are also possible during the week.

Some of these storms could also produce heavy rain, leading to localized flash flooding.
