AccuWeather storm warning meteorologist Alex Avalos explained in a recent report that a cold front moving towards the south will trigger the severe weather.
"Storms will be capable of producing damaging winds and large hail, along with localized flooding," Avalos stated.
Meteorologists warned the public to take precautions as the weekend approaches due to widespread extreme thunderstorms that will descend on Friday.
The storm will start its lash on Thursday night, as locally severe storms will target portions of South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Going into Friday, strong storms will approach through the Interstate 35 corridor from south eastern Minnesota and Wisconsin to most of Iowa, Central and Eastern Kansas and parts of central Oklahoma.
Further, meteorologists advised that there may be travel delays around Eau Claire, Wisconsin; Omaha, Nebraska; Des Moines, Iowa; Kansas City, Missouri; and Wichita, Kansas.
The storms will come with damaging winds, hail, and flash flooding. Tornadoes are expected to wreak havoc on localized areas.
It will then move to middle Mississippi and Ohio valleys, as well as the central and eastern Great Lakes region over the weekend.
