Severe weather continues to erupt across parts of the southern Plains and Deep South. Tornadoes swept through parts of Colorado on Sunday, causing damage and one minor injury, according to The Associated Press.

The threat for tornadoes will decrease into Monday morning; however, the threat of damaging winds, hail and flooding downpours will remain as storms track from Texas to Alabama.

A line of severe thunderstorms has organized itself over southern Oklahoma and northern Texas and could deliver gusty winds and flooding downpours to Dallas, Wichita Falls, and Lubbock Texas as it tracks eastwards.

Heavy rain will also spread across Nebraska throughout the overnight hours with a few stronger wind gusts possible.
