The storm system that caused more than a dozen deaths in the Midwest over the weekend is moving eastward and bringing with it another round of severe weather.

According to a hazardous weather outlook statement from the National Weather Service, there is "a good chance" the western Piedmont will see scattered strong to severe thunderstorms between 3-8 p.m. on Monday, May 1.

"The main severe threats will be damaging straight line winds and large hail," the report said. 

Elon University's campus may face wind gusts up to 34 miles per hour. Isolated tornadoes have not been ruled out. 

According to The Weather Channel, this storm system caused severe flooding from the Ozarks into the mid-Mississippi Valley April 29 and 30 as some areas received upwards of 11 inches of rain. Multiple flood records were shattered in southern Missouri. Flooding is not predicted to cause similar problems in North Carolina.
