The break from the severe weather was nice while it lasted. After a relatively docile week of weather, storms are back in the forecast for the central states beginning late Sunday. Here is a look at this reappearance of severe storms set to impact the region heading into the new week.

New Week Will Bring New Set of Storms to the Central U.S.

The end of the weekend will end with a bang across the central Plains states as more storms are expected to fire up by the end of the day Sunday. The storm cells will usher in a number of concerning impacts, including hail the size of golf balls, flooding rainfall, and tornadic activity.

It has already been a rocky month of May for much of the U.S.. According to the Storm Prediction Center (SPC), there have been over 2,600 filtered storm reports across the U.S. since the start of the month. This compares to about 1,700 reports recorded by the same time last year.

Meteorologists are quick to point out that this data has been heightened due to the impact zones of this year's activity. Unlike 2023 which saw the bulk of the storms roar across rural areas, many more population centers have been impacted by the 2024 severe weather. This will naturally raise the number of severe weather reports.
