(RNN) - The Midwest braces for another rounds of severe weather on Wednesday, a day after the Midwest was socked with hail and flooding.

The National Weather Service has placed a bull's-eye on the nation's midsection, indicating a moderate risk of severe weather.

Parts of central and southeast Nebraska, northeast Kansas, southwestern and south-central Iowa, northern Missouri and west-central Illinois are in the area of moderate risk, while large swaths of the nation, including the central and northern Plains and Ohio valley, are at a slight risk.

The storm front could bring strong winds, hail and the possibility of some strong tornadoes to those targeted areas.

Tuesday's severe weather outbreak resulted in 12 preliminary tornado reports, mostly in Nebraska, as well as more than 200 reports of hail.

Hail piled up on the ground and some spots in Nebraska and Montana.

In Washington County, NE, and Taylor County, IA, hail reached the size of golf and tennis balls, breaking the windows of some homes and cars.

Omaha, NE, broke a daily and monthly record for rainfall on Tuesday, when 5.30 inches of rain fell, flooding streets, according to a tweet from the NWS Omaha.
