    Severe thunderstorms will continue to sweep across the central United States through Thursday night.

    Storms capable of producing damaging winds, large hail and flooding will stretch from Texas to Nebraska. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

    While storms have battered the region earlier this week, this round of severe weather was more intense and widespread.

    The main threat for the remainder of the overnight will be flash flooding.
