March did not go out like a lamb across much of the central U.S. Severe weather ruined some outdoor Easter plans for the region with this trend expected to continue in the coming days.

Here is what you need to know about the potentially stormy forecast.

Easter Storm This Weekend to Hang on a Few More Days

A variety of severe weather impacts will continue to affect a large portion of the southern Plains and up into the Ohio Valley before stretching into the mid-Atlantic region through the middle of the week. These storm cells will pack the risk of large hail, strong winds, flash flooding, and isolated tornadoes as they roar to the east in the coming days.

The system rained out some Easter weekend plans as the storms erupted across a zone from Indiana to West Virginia. The hardest hit areas recorded hail the size of half-dollar coins as a Saturday storm came to life.

The rain and stormy conditions lingered into Easter Sunday in some areas as the frontal zone moved to the east and churned up the winds across southern Iowa and northern Missouri.

While this line of storms put a damper on some holiday plans, forecasters are warning that these conditions were mild compared to what is in store for Monday and Tuesday.
