Later into Thursday, the weather stem is expected to move further east, bringing with it a risk of severe weather from the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes and Midwest.
Gusty winds and hail are the primary concerns. The risk of flash flooding will linger from Arkansas into the Tennessee Valley.
A level two out of five risk is in place for parts of Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York, including Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
These scattered severe storms will remain a threat into the first half of tonight before weakening.
