    A sprawling weather system threatened to spin off tornadoes and dump large hail in its march across the Plains states on Monday, NBC News reported.

    The National Weather Service warned of "strong to severe" thunderstorms across the southern and central Plains and advised that tornadoes and "very large hail" were possible from eastern Oklahoma and northeastern Texas into central Arkansas and northern Louisiana.

    Missouri and Nebraska also were at risk, while forecasters warned of possible flash flooding in Kansas where rain was falling at up to 1.5 inches an hour and quarter-sized hail was reported.

    The same storm system brought a spate of severe weather to the Plains states over the weekend, spawning several tornadoes and massive hail from Kansas to Oklahoma and Colorado.
