While it was the Midwest, the South, and the mid-Atlantic portions of the country that saw severe weather this week, next week's risks are expected to focus on the Plains states and down into the middle and upper Mississippi Valley area.

Here is a look ahead about what you can expect in the coming week for severe weather.

New Storm System and Trailing Cold Front Will Erase Warm and Calm Conditions for Central U.S.

There is no rest for the storm weary. The threat of severe weather will once again erupt over a stretch of land in the central U.S. early next week.

The potential impacts of this anticipated storm system include tornadoes, strong winds, and more. The winds associated with this storm system will also usher in a risk of wildfires as temperatures climb.

The increase in the temperatures will begin to be felt this weekend over the nation's heartland. Temperatures will hover between 10 to 20 degrees above the historical average for much of this region.

For instance, Kansas City is forecast to climb from highs in the low 70s that closed out the week to readings that climb into the mid 80s on Saturday and Sunday under mostly sunny skies.
