The first day of the new month brought severe weather to a large part of the central U.S. with the risk expected to continue into Tuesday and Wednesday.

Here is the latest information about this rash of this severe April storm activity, including the timing of the next round and who is most likely to see the impacts.

Powerful April Storm Forecast to Linger Into Middle of Week

The new work week brought a new wave of severe weather to the central U.S. as storms fired up across parts of Texas, Oklahoma, and beyond. By the time the sun went down on Monday, there had been three reports of tornadoes in Oklahoma, just in time for Oklahoma tornado season.

It was Texas hail causing the concern across central portions of the state. Texas hail the size of grapefruits was reported in Wise County along with wind gusts hitting near 90 mph in other parts of the Lone Star State.

The active weather pattern is predicted to continue on Tuesday with the epicenter of the activity shifting to the east and into the Mississippi and Ohio valleys.

Areas in the line of fire for a storm on Tuesday include the northern tier of Indiana and Ohio and across into western Pennsylvania. To the south, the central Gulf Coast will also be squarely in the potential impact zone.

For example, storms are on deck for cities such as Jackson, Mississippi and Mobile, Alabama. The height of the activity will be during the afternoon hours when the mercury increases.

The eastern fringe of the storm cells will extend as far as the Chesapeake Bay and across the Delmarva Peninsula, demonstrating the large scope of this weather maker.

As with Monday's threats, the storms will pack the risk of damaging wind gusts, large hail, and localized flash flooding.
