A line of severe storms that slammed parts of Wisconsin and Chicago is marching toward Indianapolis and Cincinnati.

Thousands were without power in Wisconsin and Illinois as storms rolled over the area. Strong winds downed trees and power lines.

The threat for widespread damaging winds, hail, flooding downpours, frequent lightning and isolated tornadoes will continue into Monday night as the storms take aim on the Ohio Vally.

Storms will continue to cause delays in the air, on the ground and on railways.

A corridor of severe thunderstorms will reach from Oklahoma and northeastern Texas to the Carolinas and Georgia into Friday evening.

While these storms will occur before Independence Day, they can still impact early holiday festivities, such as firework displays, on Friday and Friday night.

These late-week thunderstorms will develop along a stationary front that is hung up across the southern extent of the Appalachian Mountains and back across the southern Plains.

This includes Norman, and Tulsa, Oklahoma; Little Rock and Texarkana, Arkansas; Memphis and Chattanooga, Tennessee; Tupelo, Mississippi; Huntsville and Birmingham, Alabama; Atlanta and Augusta, Georgia; Greenville and Charleston, South Carolina; and Charlotte, Raleigh and Wilmington, North Carolina.

Stormy weather will close out the first week of summer from the Ohio Valley all the way to the southern Plains.

The system responsible for Friday’s severe weather threat is also the same system that is set to spread a soaking, flooding rain across the Northeast this weekend.

Friday’s severe storms will stretch across a large swath of the country reaching from Ohio to Oklahoma, a distance just shy of 1,000 miles.

People from Cincinnati to Oklahoma City should be on alert Friday afternoon and evening as thunderstorms develop into a line and advance to the south and east.

Damaging winds are likely to be the most widespread danger from this line of thunderstorms with winds gusting faster than 70 mph in the strongest storms.

A batch of storms gathering strength over the central Plains at midweek will torment areas from the Ohio Valley into the mid-Atlantic.

The storms will target the Ohio Valley on Thursday into Thursday evening.

While the exact intensity of the individual storms at the local level cannot be determined this far out, there is the potential for damaging wind gusts, hail and frequent lightning strikes. A couple of tornadoes could develop in the strongest of storms.

The atmospheric setup on Thursday is not likely to trigger a long-lived and widespread high wind event, known as a derecho. A derecho affected parts of the Plains and Midwest on Monday.

According to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Henry Margusity, “We don’t have strong low-level and upper-level winds with this to support an event such as the derecho from Monday.”

The setup favors short-lived, small lines of gusty storms.
