The threat of severe weather will continue into the beginning of the new week, shifting eastward across the Plains and into the Midwest.
Detroit; Chicago; Madison, Wisconsin; Cedar Rapids, Iowa; St. Louis; Little Rock, Arkansas; Dallas and San Antonio are just a few of the cities in the path of severe thunderstorms on Monday and Monday night.
Travel delays should be expected as these storms move through with heavy downpours and frequent lighting, causing delays at the airports and on the roadways.
Damaging wind gusts, large hail and tornadoes will all be possible with thunderstorms that develop, especially during the afternoon and evening hours.
Additionally, moisture surging in from the Gulf of Mexico will help to fuel heavy downpours which could result in flash flooding.
If you are driving and encounter one of these heavy thunderstorms, it is important that you are aware of the dangers that they bring.
Downpours do not only reduce visibility significantly, but can also cause you to hydroplane, increasing the odds that you become involved in a weather-related accident.
If you are driving and come across water flowing over the road, you should avoid driving through it.
The water may be deeper than you anticipate and can be enough to move your vehicle. Turn around, don't drown.
