A batch of storms will move across the Midwest overnight into early Sunday morning.

There's many differences between what happened Friday and this round - with less intense storms this time. Storms may still produce some gusty winds (40-60 mph) and hail (up to quarters). The tornado threat will be very low, just slightly higher in central Iowa and southern Illinois.

Here's a similar breakdown from the NWS Quad Cities:

The reason being, stronger storms will be ongoing to the south which will prevent the flow of moisture and instability into the region. This will lead to more isolated strong storms and lower tornado potential.

Rain will move out around 11am to noon with a few additional showers and storms that may rotate back in during the afternoon:

Temperatures will be held to the upper 60s to mid 70s as a result of the morning rain and clouds:

There will be dry time during Memorial Day but there's a chance for a few scattered showers/storms as an upper level disturbance moves through:

Temperatures will be warmer, in the 70s:

Thankfully it will be mostly dry Tuesday through Thursday, much needed for a region recovering from the severe weather of the past week. There's also been some very heavy rain that has led to rises on rivers and flooding in spots:

Rain chances may increase once again by the end of the week.
