Another severe weather outbreak could wreak havoc tomorrow after at least 32 people were killed when tornadoes ripped through parts of the Midwest and South over the weekend.
Extreme weather may affect some of the same areas that were hit by the deadly tornadoes on Friday.
Severe thunderstorms are likely during the afternoon and evening from parts of Iowa, Illinois and Indiana south to parts of Missouri, Arkansas, eastern Oklahoma and northeastern Texas, according to The Weather Channel.
There seem to be a couple of passes where there will be a relatively greater threat from bad weather.
One region from central Missouri to central and eastern Iowa, southwestern Wisconsin, and northwestern Illinois.

There was significant damage in Little Rock, Arkansas. Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders has already declared a state of emergency and activated the National Guard as at least five people have been killed
The other extends from southern Missouri to much of Arkansas, southeastern Oklahoma, and far northeastern Texas.
Damaging straight-line winds, large hail and tornadoes are likely to arise. Some tornadoes can be EF2+ intensities.
According to The Weather Channel, nighttime tornadoes are also possible.
The storm system could produce more severe weather as it moves far east on Wednesday, especially in parts of the eastern Great Lakes and Ohio Valley, including Detroit, Cleveland, Cincinnati and Buffalo.
Strong winds and hurricanes may pose a danger to these areas.
At least some severe storms could develop in parts of the south.
The strong weather system will also produce heavy snowfalls and blizzards across the northern plains and upper Midwest.
There will be a strong and dynamic jet stream from the southwest to the plains, providing strong winds here for thunderstorms that form.
At the surface, moisture would return to the valleys of the Mississippi and Ohio as a powerful low pressure system anchored from the Rocky Mountains toward the upper Midwest.
This is the exact same formation that brought dozens of tornadoes to the area on Friday, according to The Weather Channel.
Over the weekend, confirmed or suspected tornadoes in 11 states damaged homes and businesses, snapped trees and devastated neighborhoods Friday night. It can take days to count all the tornadoes from recent days.
