AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - Heavy rain and gusting winds threatened to pummel the nation's midsection on Monday while the Southeast and southern Plains continued to broil, forecasters said.

Thunderstorms were expected across much of the Midwest with slight risk of severe weather including high winds, hail and heavy rain across the central Plains toward the Ohio Valley, said Rick Shanklin, National Weather Service meteorologist in Kansas City, Missouri.

Reports of damaging wind were recorded during thunderstorms over the weekend from South Dakota to Kansas and east across much of Missouri, Shanklin said.
