Another Round Of Severe Weather Could Strike Midwest

Another round of severe storms Tuesday could strike Oklahoma, one of the states hit by a wave of violent weather last week, forecasters say.

National Weather Service forecasts early Tuesday include the possibility of heavy winds, large hail and tornadoes also in Illinois, Kansas, Arkansas, western Tennessee, Indiana and Missouri. The cities at risk of severe weather include St. Louis, Indianapolis and Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The threat of heavy storms is predicted to diminish in those areas on Wednesday morning, but the Northeast could experience isolated outbreaks of severe storms later in the day, forecasters said.

The South, according to forecasters, has little chance of suffering a repeat Tuesday of the violent storms and tornadoes that killed at least 45 people last week.

Three days after the largest tornado outbreak since 2008 raked the Southeast, the focus has shifted in the region to cleanup.
