The storms that are rattling the central Plains to start the new work week are forecast to expand their wrath into the Gulf Coast and mid-Atlantic by Wednesday.

Forecasters are predicting that over 125 million Americans will be in the target zone by the middle of the week. Here is the latest on what the forecast models are predicting.

Threat of Severe Weather Will Push to the South and the East by Middle of the Week

The week started on a volatile note for the central U.S. with severe weather popping up all over the Plains states. The storms are predicted to inch into the valleys of the Mississippi, Ohio, and Tennessee rivers by the middle of the week and eventually extend into the Gulf Coast region and beyond.

The greatest chance of severe weather this week for places such as Cincinnati will be on Tuesday when scattered storms in the morning will become more widespread in the latter part of the day.

The threat of stormy conditions will linger into the overnight hours. The forecast is calling for a high of about 81 degrees and temperatures that fall into the low 60s overnight.

The Ohio and Tennessee valleys will bear the brunt of Wednesday's severe weather risks, however, some of the activity will likely push as far to the east as the central and southern Appalachians and over to the coastline of the mid-Atlantic.

Some of these storm cells could be severe in nature, packing powerful winds, frequent lightning strikes, heavy rain, and hail.
