"The potential for severe weather will persist tonight in eastern Oklahoma, northern Texas, northern Arkansas and southern Missouri, with much of this thunderstorm activity expected to merge into one line, but embedded tornadoes may still develop within that line Storms, "said Rossio.

Heavy thunderstorms will spread across the Mid and Midwest US on Wednesday, including areas exposed to storms Tuesday.

"Storms will move slowly during this period, causing high precipitation rates of over 2 inches per hour, and can easily cause flooding," said Kayla St. Germain, AccuWeather Storm Warning.

Rossio said the main danger overnight is not only the damaging wind potential, but also the significant flood potential of many of these sites.

"These storms are likely to train in the same places and generate 3 to 5 inches of rain in some areas, which can be particularly dangerous for motorists at night, who may find it difficult to see flooded roads in front of them," Rossio said ,
