The central United States will barely have time to recover from the recent storm before the next round of fierce storms begins earlier this week.

This next outbreak could be as significant, if not worse, than the bad weather event that happened on Friday.

"It looks like there's no end in sight of this very active storm in late May," said Reed Timmer, Accu Weather Extreme's meteorologist.

On Friday, Timmer from Nebraska contacted the AccuWeather network and caught a tornado on foot near McCook.

Nearly 40 temporary tornadoes were reported in Nebraska and Kansas last week, and the storm continued on Saturday.

Leading AccuWeather meteorologist Jack Boston fears that more tornadoes will reappear in the renewed threat of bad weather earlier this week.

A strong storm system will trigger a severe eruption of mid- and southern-level storms Monday before it spreads towards Mid-Mississippi Valley on Tuesday, according to Boston.

Monday is expected to be the heaviest day of the outbreak. Areas of West and Central Texas, Oklahoma, and South Kansas are prone to storm damage, heavy hail, flooded downpours, and tornadoes.

Some of the tornadoes can be strong, last longer than a few minutes, and appear after dark.

The hailstones can be very large h to damage siding, vehicles and crops and mortally injure people or animals caught outdoors.

"The storm in central states earlier this week may be just as fierce as this weekend and could worsen conditions," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said, "This includes Amarillo and Lubbock (Texas) – cities that are suffering from heavy Storms on Friday and Saturday have been spared. "Wichita Falls and Abilene, Texas; Lawton, Woodword, Tulsa and Guymon, Oklahoma; and Dodge City and Wichita, Kansas, also need to keep an eye on the sky and be aware of the rapidly changing weather conditions early in the week.
