Strong to severe thunderstorms will target parts of the Midwest on Tuesday. The main threats will be damaging wind gusts and hail, though there is also a chance of a few tornadoes.

Severe thunderstorms moved through Ohio on Monday afternoon and damage to structures was reported near Phillipsburg and Arcanum. In fact, an EF-1 tornado has been confirmed near Phillipsburg. A mobile home was also heavily damaged near Laura, Ohio.

On Monday evening, golf ball size hail was spotted near Durham and Youngsville North Carolina. There have also been numerous reports of golf ball size hail in South Carolina, including in Duncan, Moore and near Spartanburg. Hail up to two inches in diameter was observed near Taylors with damage to trees reported.

Wind damage was also reported Monday evening in Easley, South Carolina with trees and powerlines down. A tin roof was damaged in Pickens, South Carolina as well.

Below is a breakdown of what can be expected in the days ahead
Severe Weather Forecast

Into Early Tuesday
•The same upper disturbance responsible for Sunday's severe thunderstorms will continue to weaken as it sweeps into the East.
•A few severe storms are possible in southern Virginia, North Carolina and northern South Carolina into early Tuesday.
•Some large hail and damaging thunderstorm wind gusts are possible, though no widespread severe weather is anticipated at this time.

Tuesday
•Low pressure develops over the Plains, then moves into the Upper Mississippi Valley.
•Severe thunderstorms may develop ahead of that low in parts of eastern Iowa, southern Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, northern Kentucky, western Ohio and southern Michigan.
•Large hail, damaging winds and heavy rainfall will be possible. The chance of a tornado or two cannot be ruled out.

Excerpt from the article. Tornado touched down with wind speeds up to 105 mph.
See the Ohio tornado video on the page link farther below.

Ohio

https://weather.com/news/weather/news/severe-state-by-state-impacts

An EF-1 tornado blew through Phillipsburg, Ohio, Monday afternoon, tearing the roof off a home and damaging several nearby barns. A National Weather Service survey team said the twister touched down at 2:18 p.m. with wind speeds up to 105 mph.
Jenna Kesler, a firefighter in Phillipsburg, told WHIO the roof and doors were blown off of a home in the 8800 block of Baltimore Phillipsburg Road.

“All the sudden a big train sound came through here,” said Steve Woolf, Clay Twp. trustee,  who lives across the street.

Woolf had been in the basement with his wife and dogs during the first tornado warning. As they came upstairs, the second tornado warning was issued, and he saw his neighbor’s roof coming right for his home

A portion of the severe weather forecast. Could be a tornado or two in the Midwest and other regions during this week.
See the entire forecast here:

Severe Weather and Flash Flooding Forecast

Into Tuesday Evening

•Scattered strong to severe thunderstorms are expected in the Florida peninsula through early evening.
•Locally heavy rain is the main threat, but gusty winds and some hail will also be possible.
•We also cannot rule out an isolated severe storm in the central High Plains.

Wednesday -
States Impacted: southeast Nebraska, southern Iowa and northwest Illinois southward to parts of Missouri, eastern Kansas, western and southern Arkansas, eastern and central Oklahoma, Louisiana, and east Texas.
•Potential Impacts: Damaging wind gusts, large hail and a few tornadoes are possible.
•Cities: Dallas | Kansas City | Shreveport, Louisiana | Tulsa, Oklahoma
•As mentioned before, there is some uncertainty with the magnitude of the severe threat. Early morning thunderstorms and cloud cover could limit the instability that is needed to fuel severe storms in some areas. This could limit the areal coverage and number of severe thunderstorms to a smaller area than currently depicted.
•In addition, multiple clusters of thunderstorms in the Lower Mississippi Valley may pose a risk of flash flooding, falling on ground still saturated (or flooded) from the early-March flood event. The National Weather Service has issued flash flood watches for parts of the region.

Thursday:

States Impacted: Severe storms and heavy rain continue to move through the South along the tail end of the cold front, from east Texas to Georgia. Some severe weather is possible as far east as the Carolinas. There is a chance that severe storms may develop as far north as the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes, as well.
•Potential Impacts: Damaging wind gusts, large hail and a few tornadoes.
•Cities: Atlanta | Cincinnati | Nashville | New Orleans
•Flash flooding will continue to be a threat, particularly in the South.
