.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Thursday)
Issued at 252 PM CDT Wed Jun 28 2017

An isolated strong to severe thunderstorm is possible today
between 5 pm and 8 pm along and southeast of a line from Osborne,
KS to Geneva, NE. The main threats are quarter size hail and
isolated 60 mph wind gusts.

After 8 pm, scattered thunderstorms are expected to redevelop.
The highest coverage of storms is expected to be south of I-80.
Some of these storms could be severe with up to golf ball size
hail and 60 mph wind gusts. Localized heavy rainfall and flooding
are also possible.

The MCS could disrupt things for Thursday, but we could have yet
another shot at severe weather with the boundary(ies) around.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday night through Wednesday)
Issued at 252 PM CDT Wed Jun 28 2017

Cool down finally for Friday/Saturday, but yet more moisture
return for Sunday/Monday with more storms possible, with best
chance of severe looking like Sunday evening. Still looks like it
should dry out by July 4th.

.AVIATION...(For the 00Z KGRI/KEAR TAFS through 00Z Thursday)
Issued at 630 PM CDT Wed Jun 28 2017

A warm front will move into southern Nebraska tonight which will
be the focus for tonights convection. The warm front is currently
forecast south of the terminals overnight and because of this will
only mention VCTS in the TAFs as we expected the activity to
remain south of the terminals. VFR conditions are forecast through
the TAF period outside of convection which could lower vis down to
a mile for short periods of time.
