An extended period of intense weather could extend this week’s tornado trend.

An extended period of treacherous weather could extend the spell of twisters throughout the week.

“Several powerful tornadoes, massive hailstones and strong winds are forecast,” as stated by the Storm Prediction Center on Sunday.

More than 2 million people in the regions from Oklahoma City to Wichita, Kansas, will face a significant risk of severe storms, with a rating of 4 out of 5.

Places where tornadoes occurred less than two weeks ago are anticipating the emergence of severe weather on Monday afternoon and evening.

So far, the United States has reported ten consecutive days of tornadoes, with the potential to add more. A multi-day severe weather event is possible Monday through Wednesday, leading to an even greater increase in already high tornado numbers.

May is the busiest month for tornadoes in America, with tornadoes already exceeding average. Through May 4, the U.S. has seen a total of 583 preliminary tornado reports this year — slightly more than the average annual total of 531. Last month featured the second-highest number of preliminary confirmed tornadoes for April, at 300.

On Tuesday, the danger shifts eastward to the Mississippi Valley and Ohio Valley regions, creating a level 2 out of 5 risk for areas including Louisville, Nashville, Kentucky, Memphis and Little Rock, Arkansas, Cincinnati and Indianapolis. Potential threats include high winds, tornadoes and hail.

Thunderstorms are possible in certain areas of Arkansas, Missouri and Illinois in the early hours of Tuesday. For the other areas, the danger of heavy storms starts in the afternoon and increases during the night.

Wednesday’s tornado risk covers the region from northeastern Texas to western Ohio, where high temperatures and humidity levels are a major contributor to the development of severe storms during the day and sustain them into the evening and overnight. A variety of dangerous weather events are possible Wednesday, including prominent hail, high winds and tornadoes.
